"Powerful. Exciting. Original." Celia Rees This award-winning classic speaks back to the divisions of fourteenth century Britain from the perspective of a much-loved hunting dog. Branford's Guardian Children's Fiction Prize-winning novel is a moving narrative about injustice, upheaval and survival in fourteenth century Britain. From the point of view of a devoted and sought-after hunting dog, her story focuses on the societal tension and oppression that lead to her beloved masters Rufus and Comfort being arrested for heresy during the Peasants' Revolt, and how she must then struggle to raise her puppy Fleabane and forge a life away from the cruel landlord and violence happening all around her. Ultimately an uplifting story about loyalty and hope.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Branford's skilful handling results in a thoroughly convincing and totally engrossing novel. A strong and deserving contender for the Carnegie medal. * The Sunday Telegraph *
Both I and a 13-year-old tester were lost in admiration for the brilliantly devised Fire, Bed and Bone. * The Times *
This powerful tale with its unusual viewpoint is as fresh and exciting today as when first published... Cleverly original, the deceptive simplicity and economy of style makes it immediately accessible to any young reader. * Celia Rees *
