Crispin: Cross of Lead Chapter 16

By Avi

Chapter 16

  • Crispin slowly approaches the church.
  • Through a window, he sees a huge man in a ridiculous multicolored costume; the man sees him, too.
  • Crispin and the man go back and forth for a while about where Crispin comes from, if he's hungry, and whether or not the king is just—deep stuff to talk about with someone you just met.
  • Crispin accepts the man's offer of food and enters the church.
  • Just as he gets close enough to take the food, though, the man reaches out and grabs him. Clearly no one taught Crispin much about stranger danger.
