Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Natalie Gurr
Stinky moats of sewage, besought upon by flying cows and arrows, smoky spaces and gloomy rooms—all part of living in a medieval castle. Steifel de-romanticizes Middle Ages living with humorous anecdotes and facts about what it really meant to live in a castle. Written with enough detail to be informative, but enough wit to be entertaining, this book will appeal to readers of all ages. Murder holes, open barrel bath tubs, and royal toilets, provide fascinating starting points that will hook readers and create a story about the dirty truth of castle living. The past is brought to life by easy, casual writing that makes the history more accessible. Humorous cartoon illustrations help convey information in a lighthearted way. The book contains a table of contents, glossary, and index. A page of suggested sources makes it easy to research more material. Students will enjoy the lighthearted style and amusing pictures.

Gr 3–4—Gross is king in this entertaining series. The volumes are filled with garbage and germs, weird foods and scary medicines, and stinky suits of armor. The details are a part of the real history of the Middle Ages, and the selected topics are sure to appeal to trivia buffs and fans of potty humor. Quoted primary sources confirm that the authors aren't making this stuff up: firsthand accounts acknowledge the less-pleasant aspects of life. The fantastic and funny art amps up the humor-the only shame is that several images are reused across the series. Topics overlap in the text as well, but each book provides a full picture of its subject, and readers are just as likely to giggle when they encounter yucky details a second time.
