The Door in the Wall by Marguerite de Angeli
A very short book; but LOTS of Old English and words like thy and nought. 6th grade is a good time to read it. Set in Medieval times.
Robin is 10 years old, stuck in a without the use of his legs, and his parents are away to serve the kingdom. Saved by Brother Luke, a very kind monk, he heads to St. Marks to be taught skills like woodworking. After some good times at St. Mark’s, Robin receives a letter from his father telling him that Robin will be moved to a different castle. But when that different castle, the Castle of Lindsay, gets partly invaded by a very strong army, Robin finds that he is the only one who can save the castle from total invasion by pretending to be someone he is not. Read The Door in the Wall by Marguerite deAngeli to find out what happens.
I read this book in a book group, and it was a good book for that because there are a lot of things that you will need to talk about, like vocabulary and plot/timeline. I recommend reading this in a book group or just with someone else so you can talk about it.
