      "THE HIDDEN TREASURE OF GLASTON, Eleanore M. Jewett; Illustrated by
      Frederick Chapman

      "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.

      This was a childhood favorite that I'm happy to see in print again. Not a
      fantasy, but great for lovers of Arthuriana - and their children.

      I note that Ignatius' sponsored series of "Bethlehem Books," which seem to be
      reprints of older books for children, mostly historical fiction, also
      includes one by Andre' Norton, not generally considered a Catholic author :)
      It's a tale of ancient Egypt, titled SHADOW HAWK. Not on the web page, but
      listed in the catalog as catalog no. SHAH-P.

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