Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Children's Literature

"...a very realistic view of knights and castles and helps readers understand the challenges of medieval life."

Children's Literature
Knights and dragons, castles and keeps--the medieval world still continues to enchant us today with visions of heroic chivalry and valor. This book ably separates fact from fiction as it offers readers concise descriptions and detailed illustrations of medieval times. The book focuses primarily on knights--how they trained, what armor they used, their tournaments and wars. Cutaway illustrations of castles help to deepen children's understanding of daily life and how people were divided by their work and station in life. Although the book does not offer much on the topic of chivalry, it does provide a very realistic view of knights and castles and helps readers understand the challenges of medieval life. A glossary and index are included. 2005, Kingfisher/Houghton Mifflin, Ages 5 to 7.
