This school-aged children's historical novel is told in the first person by 11 year-old Marjorie, the daughter of the Scottish King Robert the Bruce, who was captured by King Edward of England during one of the wars for the independence of Scotland, and imprisoned in an outdoor cage. She is determined not only to survive, but to outwit the English king. Very well written, as one would expect from Jane Yolen, and any adult interested in Scottish history would enjoy it too.
