Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3?Speculation as to how a singular white stone came to be among the 250,000 dull-colored ones in the wall surrounding Toronto's Casa Loma prompted the telling of this story. Built over 80 years ago by industrialist Sir Henry Pellatt, the medieval-style castle is surrounded by an immense wall made of stones purchased from poor citizens of Toronto. The saga of John Tommy Fiddich, a lucky boy who offers Pellatt a white stone representing hours of hard labor, is told in short, static phrases. Far better than the narration are the full-page watercolor paintings that depict the poverty of the shantytown beneath the castle, which contrasts with the splendor of its gardens and magnificent construction. A book that's of limited interest, except possibly to collectors of Toronto history.?Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY

Review

“This is a very satisfying work of historical fiction for the young.”
Globe and Mail

“A wonderful story about a young boy…and hard work…A Toronto story that is quite universal in its appeal.”

A Kid's Review on January 3, 2001
Format: Hardcover
I used this book to learn about history. It's about a boy in 1912 and something that actually happened when a rich man asked people to bring stones to help build the wall of his castle. The illustrator drew great pictures of what the city was like in 1912 and how people lived at that time.(Amazon said it was made of photos but they are actually pictures that are drawn) I did a presentation about it at school and everyone really liked it and now they are all reading the book and saying it is great. (My mom helped with this review)

A Kid's Review on January 3, 2001
Format: Paperback
I read this book in school and its my favourite of the year, It is a real adventure of a boy in 1912. It made me feel like something from history could have happened to me. I really liked the pictures too because they showed how the city looked. Later we found out that all those buildings can still be seen and we can actually visit the Castle where it all happened.
