Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

Awards Short-listed for Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Award 1993 (Australia) -- Short-listed for Older Readers 1993 (Australia)
NZ Review 'Jinks's alternately hilarious, often poignant novel turns medieval history into fodder for both high comedy and allegory...' Publisher's Weekly'Shrewd and scrappy, with an instinct for self-preservation and a strong sense of loyalty, Pagan Kidrouk makes an engaging and spirited narrator. From the beginning of Pagan's Crusade, I found myself plunged into the thick of medieval Jerusalem...A grand adventure!' Nancy Bond'Who would have thought that the crusades could have been funny and irreverent as well as violent?'travelbeat.com.au, 25/5/07
