Description
An ambitious Stone Age man demands a talisman that will harden his heart, allowing him to take control of his tribe, in this book from two-time Newbery Medalist and Hans Christian Andersen Award winner Katherine Paterson and her husband. The Flint Heart does as he wishes, but the cruelty of it destroys the tribe. Thousands of years later, the talisman reemerges to corrupt a kindly farmer, an innocent fairy creature, and a talking badger. Freely abridged from Eden Phillpotts's 1910 fantasy, and tantalizingly depicted in John Rocco's detailed watercolors throughout, this robust and wildly entertaining fairy tale is wryly retold for modern readers of all ages.

"The Patersons have done a stellar job of maintaining the book's period feel while creating a fresher, tighter story that feels tailor-made for family reading."Publishers Weekly (starred review)
