Synopsis: WorldCat: A mute boy is held captive by the strange proprietress of an inn. "The horrors endured by Dickens' most downtrodden characters are akin to what Aaron has to endure at the hands of evil Miss Grackle in The Half-A-Moon Inn". Aaron's mother fails to return home with his 12th birthday present and he sets out in a blizzard to find her. [He gets lost in the woods and snow, yet reaches the Inn. There Miss Grackle reads the dreams of her guests while they sleep and steals money from most of them.] "Aaron becomes a virtual prisoner because [the cursed] Grackle needs an honest person to light the first and warm the inn." --from brief review by Barbara Karlin Los Angeles Times 1980-03-09 p10, not evidently as speculative fiction; bracketed notes gleaned from KirkusReviews.com and April/May newspapers "... Most significant, though, is Fleischman's handling of Aaron's handicap. ... [He] makes neither too much nor too little of Aaron's muteness. He simply incorporates it into the tale, and any message about how resourceful a handicapped person can be is enhanced as a result." [In this and other respects, the story is old-fashioned rather than over-relevant.] --Stephen Krensky The Christian Science Monitor 1980-05-12 pB10
