Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Selected by the Childrens Book Committee at Bank Street College of Education as one of the 2004 Best Childrens Books for the Year

The late Joan Bodger was known internationally as one of our foremost storytellers. At the heart of her repertoire were the great medieval tales of lords and ladies, treachery, and chivalry. Among these beautiful courtly tales from Europe are the stories of Tristan - young and old - Childe Rowland, Burd Janet, and Iron John.

These are stories that were heard at the long tables of the great halls, stories repeated around modest peat fires in cozy cottages, stories that traveled with the tellers across the seas. Tales of Court and Castle is an irresistible invitation to young readers to discover stories of enduring power.

Synopsis:

Tales of Court and Castle presents medieval tales of treachery and chivalry.

Synopsis:

- award-winning author
- Joan Bodger was a legend in the field of storytelling
- a subject of perpetual interest
