The Windeby Puzzle by Lois Lowry
Estrild thirsted for what the boys had: power. Varrick had an inquisitive mind before science even existed. Together they tell the story of the “Windeby child,” an ancient adolescent body found in a bog in northern Germany in 1952. Two-time Newbery Award–winning author Lois Lowry (The Giver and Number the Stars) brilliantly combines history and storytelling to demonstrate life lived in the Iron Age, 2000 years ago. A great book for inquisitive readers.
