So begins Joe and Lilly's first magical adventure back in time. They have tons of questions about everything, so Red shows them what life was really like in the year 1200. But they'll have to stay one step ahead of an angry mob, wild beasts, and an evil knight who are hot on the dragon's trail. And when the trip is done, the only question left is where they will go next!

This easy reader features special extras like maps, time lines, glossaries, and super facts that take you beyond the story and bring history to life!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
05/01/2014
K-Gr 2—This beginning reader integrates elements of fiction, nonfiction, and time travel. The verso of the title page has a small map of Europe with a dragon swimming in the Atlantic Ocean. The caption on top of the map indicates that readers are traveling back in time to 1200 in England, and the caption under the map explains that England is a country in Europe, a "whole ocean away" from the United States. The book begins with Joe's report on the Middle Ages. Lilly offers to help him research on the computer, and once she types "Middle Ages" they are dragged into the computer and greeted by Red the Time Dragon. While in the Middle Ages, Joe and Lilly see a town and its people, a cathedral, and finally the castle of Sir Vile. Of course, Sir Vile is a bully and a thief to the peasants, and, of course, Red defeats him, and all is well in the end. The last page shows Joe and Lilly being spit back out of the computer. The last few pages have a few facts about the Middle Ages, a time line, and a glossary. A supplemental purchase.—Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City

    A magical romp through the Middle Ages! Very entertaining and educational journey of two kids and their friendly, knowledgeable, red-scaled travel guide. Wonderful illustrations and a compelling story line. Extra materials at the back of the book are a nice touch!

    Got this at a book fair today and read through it. It is so cute and semi educational though not everything is correct. It is a cute way to introduce level 2 readers to history. I am going to be watching for more books for my daughter. She is 7.
