    Good for leisurely flip throughs

    This book is full of imagination and charm. I've found it wonderful for leisurely flip throughs when I want something more than just text to occupy my senses. Also works great to entertain guests on the coffee table. The writing is not well done but is overshadowed by the pop-ups and colorful pictures. For anyone who is a fan of Sabuda or who enjoys figuring out the mechanics of things, this book is quite enjoyable. I often create pop-ups myself so I was thrilled to see Sabuda in action with Castles.<BR/>I've only read one other Sabuda pop-up book though, and it was better than this one. The action of the movements are quite satisfactory and seem durable enough for children 7 to 85.<BR/>Spoiler warning: There is one scene of a castle's torture chamber depicted in a small corner of one of the pop-ups. This is the only objectionable material if young children are reading it, however, I do appreciate Sabuda's dedication to realism by portraying it. The scene shows a man in chains against a wall with a wound. In front of him is another man who has rocks piled on top of him meant to slowly crush him to death. The image is tramatically done, but is not noticeable if one is just flipping through the book.

    Castle Intrejects Realism along with Education

    Wow! The graphical information along with the anticipation of what's on the next page kept me, an adult, delighted. The descriptive information given was great for adults as well as children grades three on up. I loved the expressions on the children's faces and their absolute attention as I read with them. The Castle is one that I will keep handy in my library. To date, the jury is still out on who enjoys it the most, the reader, or the observer. It's a book that must be seen to be apreciated.

    So, what is a knight?

    If your kids are asking "What is a knight?", then this book is for you. The book is informative and the illustrations are terrific.
