"THE HIDDEN TREASURE OF GLASTON, Eleanore M. Jewett; Illustrated by
"Amidst great mystery, Hugh is left in the care of Glastonbury Abbey by his
father who must flee England too swiftly to be burdened by a crippled son.
Ashamed of his physical weakness, yet possessed of a stout heart, Hugh finds
that life at the abbey is surprisingly full in this year 1171, in the
turbulent days of King Henry II. Hugh, his friend Dickon and their strange
friend, the mad Bleheris, uncover a treasure trove and with it a deeper
mystery of the sort that could only occur in Glastonbury where Joseph of
Arimithea was said to have lived out his last years. Before all is done, more
is resolved than Hugh could ever have hoped. A Newbery Honor winner.

There is also an illustrated and annotated edn. of Chesterton's BALLAD OF THE
