Summary
A look at the life of knights in the Middle Ages and a collection of tales about their adventures.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 4^-8. Like dinosaurs, knights, with their castles, horses, armor, and weaponry, have always been a source of fascination for children, but they haven't been explored much in books at the preschool and primary level. Gibbons gives kids the information they crave--beginning with the when and the why knights wore armor. She covers tournaments, chivalry, and what happened when a bad knight was caught. Legendary knights such as Sir Gawain and the knights of the Round Table are briefly described, as is St. George and the dragon, and Gibbons also discusses present-day knights. The watercolor-and-ink pictures are some of Gibbons' liveliest and most attractive: there's plenty of fighting, decorative clothing and heraldry, and clear labels pointing out the parts of a castle and the names of the armor pieces. Children won't want to surrender this book, so buy multiple copies. --Susan Dove Lempke"
