Crispin
Crispin The Cross of Lead By Avi, 1937- Book - 2002

In the 14th century, a newly orphaned village boy named Crispin has been accused of a crime he did not commit and is thus declared a wolf's head which means, terrifyingly, that he can be killed on sight, by anyone! Now he is on the run in an unfamiliar world in which his only ally is the enormous and somewhat frightening man called Bear. Crispin’s only clue to his past is the lead cross that was his mother's only possession. Unfortunately, Crispin cannot read its inscription but he nonetheless begins a breathtaking adventure across England, in order to succeed at both evading his captors and hopefully discovering who he is in the process. This is part one of a well-written trilogy for fans of riveting fiction set in Medieval times. Avi is a prolific novelist with many books to choose from after you make your way through Crispin’s trilogy
