                                 Appreciation
 The character I would want as a friend would be Perkin. He is a very sweet, caring, and sympathetic
  friend who is always there when Adam needs him. Rh
 I dislike Jenkin because he kidnapped Nick and was a mean character. AC
 I disliked Sir Robert De Rideware because he was a traitor and a thief.-JG
 The character that I most disliked in this book was Jankin. He took Adam’s dog, Nick, and also
  mistreated the horse he won from Adam’s father Robert the Minstrel. After Jankin rode Bayard he
  was lamed and hungry. JN
 I disliked Jankin because he was very mean to the minstrels whom he cheated out of their
  and to Adam from whom he stole Nick. LL
 I disliked Jankin because he was greedy and reckless, as well as a thief. AS
 The character I would like as a friend would is Hugh. At first he is mean, but then he becomes very
  nice and friendly.-AJ
 The character that I would like to trade places with is with Adam. I would like to be there with Adam
  because I love animals and I would help him find his dog.-SK
 The author was very good at painting pictures with her words. “Hoar frost silvered every twig and
  holly leaf in the thicket beside the road, and when the sun suddenly came out the whole world
  shone and glittered like the fairy country in the “Lay of Sir Orfeo.”-KK
 The book was interesting but in a way it was boring.-TM
 I do not like Jankin because he is a thief and he always mean to everybody- TF
                                       Evaluation
 During this time, I believe everything that happened could have happened. RH
 The part of the story that best describes the setting, is when Adam wanders through the woods. A.C
 This story is teaching you a lesson because it’s telling you that you can never love a friend too much.-
  JG
 I think that this story is trying to teach a lesson even though it doesn’t come out as strongly as the
  author had hoped it would. The lesson is that you should never give up on your friends and family
  even if they give up on you. JN
 I would have made the ending a little more exciting. I would have made Adam and Roger happier to
  see each other. LL
 I think other people would enjoy this story because it ends happily and had lots of action.AS
 The part that best represents the setting is when Adam, Roger, and Nick are traveling along a road.-AJ
 Yes, the story was easy to read because he learned I learned vocabulary from another book and I
  understand it more now that I learned the vocabulary.-SK
 The main character was right in what he did. Adam was very kind and gracious to all people and
  plainly sought to bring joy into other people’s lives. When his father and dog disappear Adam looks
  for them without ever giving up hope.-KK
 I would have had Roger give Adam a new harp.-TM
 The story is very easy to read, because it is a book about a kid that I could see myself being if I lived in
  the middle ages. TF
                                         Inferential
   Jankin acted blunt and greedy because he was never shown much love and didn’t have many friends. RH
   A good title for this story would be; The Search For Nick. A.C.
   I would have added to the story that Robin lost Perkin too.-JG
   When Jankin took Nick I believe that he had a reason for it even though it was the wrong thing to do. In the
    Medieval Times it was very hard to earn money and the focus of most people was to just survive. I believe
    that Jankin was not a very good minstrel and believed that the dog would make people like his show more.
    Even though it was wrong to take Nick he did what he had to survive. JN
   Adam and Jankin had different outlooks about each other throughout the book. In the beginning, Adam
    thought Jankin was a very kind man the way he reached down to pet Nick. Soon after, though, Adam
    despised Jankin after he had stolen Nick. Jankin thought Adam and Nick to be a toy, and he didn’t realize how
    close of a friendship he had split up. LL
   “The Minstrel's Son” would have been a good title for this book.-AS
   Another good title for this book would be Travels of a Minstrel.-AJ
   There are some differences between Adam and Jankin. The differences are that Adam is kind, honest, and
    brave while Jankin steals and gambles. They are alike by being risky about things and they are both minstrels.
    -SK
   Nick truly is what you would call man’s best friend. Adam loves his little dog more than almost anything in
    the world. Adam and Nick have the relationship of master and dog. Nick is very faithful to Adam and will do
    absolutely anything for him. Nick and Adam really are the best of friends.-KK
   Adam loved his father very much. I think that Roger loved him, but he was very stupid. Roger still loved
    Adam very much. Adam very much. Adam and his father, Roger, will probably always love each other. These
    two characters really showed what being a family is all about. TM
   “The Lost Boy” would have been another good title for this book. TF
                                              Literal
   This story took place during the Middle Ages in England. RH
   Adam swam a river, trying to catch Jenkin to get back Nick. AC
   The character I chose was Jankin and he stole Adam’s dog, Nick.-JG
   This story took place in medieval Europe. Adam traveled to many of the major cities of the time such
    as London and Oxford. JN
   This story took place in the roads, streets, fairs, and countryside of England in the Middle Ages. LL
   This story took place in the years 1294-1295in Europe around London. AS
   This story took place in Medieval Times. The characters travel through much of the countryside and
    through towns and cities, like London.-AJ
   Adam went searching for Nick, his dog which showed me that he is brave, kind, and loyal to his only
    one companion.-SK
   1. “At once the door swung open, and out rushed a little red whirlwind with flopping ears, big fringy
    feet, and a frantic tail.” 2. “Nick’s tongue was in Adam’s ear, his feet on Adam’s chest, and his silky hair
    in Adam’s face, but only for a minute.” 3. “He bounced up against Perkin’s shins, he ran round and
    round in great circles over grass and road, he yelped with joy, his long tongue hanging out the side of
    his mouth and his ears flapping together over the top of his head.”-KK
   Jankin 1. One was little, dark haired man with sharp black eyes and a thin vivid face. 2. “Came rushing
    up here elbowing better folks aside, and jumped into the boat when it was already full and people
    waiting for the next trip. No manners.” 3. A little dark fellow. TM
   The story took place in the Middle Ages in Europe. TF

 You could find additional information on the subject of this story in an encyclopedia or book on the
  Middle Ages or minstrels. RH
 You could find additional information at the library. AC
 He proudly did something. He shouted loudly at Jankin. He bravely swam across the river to save
  Adam’s dog, Nick.-JG
 “’Hugh!’ cried Godffrey reproachfully” – Reproachfully-in a manner of mild rebuke or criticism. “you
  say he was a knight. Did you notice his bearings?” – Bearings-the symbol assigned to knights of
  different lords. “Dark lurked beyond the whiteness of the fog; now and then a ghostly building
  loomed up and vanished” – Lurked-lied in wait. JN
 This story was published in 1942. The events of the story don’t take place during that time; it takes
  place during the Middle Ages. LL
 The story was published in 1987.The story took place long before this book was published. I know this
  because the dates in the book are in the late 1900s and its 2008.AS
