Young readers will be spellbound by this story of fierce battles, dark dungeons, secret passageways, and medieval characters, made all the more vivid by true tales from experts in the field. Fun facts and photos, including reenactment shots, illuminate the lives of the inhabitants and the fascinating histories of castles.
I bought this for my 13-year-old, and he couldn't put it down. He loved the big pictures and the stories about knights, jousting and castle battles. He had fun quizzing me to test my knowledge of castles and see if I could tell myths from facts. I only wish the book was a little bigger-he's already read it twice!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
