Description - Discovering Knights & Castles by Richard Platt

Discovering Knights and Castles is an authoritative book about the Middle Ages for 7 to 11-year-olds. Life in the Middle Ages was much more dangerous than today. Many people lived in high-walled castles, protected by brave knights clad in armour and wielding heavy swords and lances. Plunge into Knights and Castles and discover what it was like to live in a castle. What did everyone eat? Where was the garderobe? Who were the pantler, the constable, and the marshall? And follow the story of a young orphan page as he trains to become a knight - will he save the castle and marry the baron's daughter? Or will he be banished and meet a bloody end on the battlefield? Anything could happen! Red Kite Books' Discovering series has two special features setting it apart from the competition: a story told in verse running along the bottom of each spread and a fantastic free gift tucked inside the back cover. In Discovering Knights and Castles, the free gift is a spectacular knight's coat-of-arms banner.
