When a Stone Age man (Phutt) wants to become leader of his tribe, he asks the local wise man (Fum) to make a magical amulet that will make him strong. And while this is an easy task for Fum, he realizes that if Phutt has that kind of power, something must be sacrificed...and what is sacrificed is Phutt’s good heart! After Phutt’s death, the amulet quietly waits for a new owner...and finds it in Billy Jago: a man beloved by his large family and village, too. It is up to his children, Charles and Unity, to stop their father’s new cruelty. And they find it in the most unlikely and magical of places! Their story (and the story of the Flint Heart)is far from over!A captivating read-aloud as well as a standalone read for the child aged 8 to 10. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
