This is a 1949 Newbery award-winner. Still a great read.
Parent notes: Main theme of overcoming adversity and finding strength in your weakness. Reliance on prayer. The good King Edward in this book is the very same Edward Longshanks who was the villain of the "Braveheart" movie. I thought that was interesting.
The book tells the story of Robin, the son of a Norman aristocrat who longs to be a knight. While left alone while his parents are helping the King and Queen who are at war, a plague breaks out in London. Robin gets sick, but not from plague-he gets something like polio and looses the use of his legs. He is rescued by a Friar who teaches him how to adapt without the use of his legs. Robin then has many adventures where he proves his worth despite the handicap.
A great story for people of all ages.

I am not sure if a child alone can understand the book if he/she reads this book by him/herself.
If I read this book to children, I would read one chapter at a time, stopping frequently to try to explain what was written, and at the end I would summarize the book with this: The reason why the main character finds his own door in the wall is because he accomplished something that basically anybody else could have done but nobody thought of or tried doing; and of course he did it regarless of his physical limitations.
