Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This heavily illustrated book takes children on an imaginary journey to medieval Europe, where knights swore oaths of loyalty to their lords and lived according to the rules of chivalry. Dramatic full-color spreads on every page show and describe the typical knight--his armor, his weapons, his helmet, his horse, and his activities. Young readers learn about--

  • The Making of a Knight: his training for battle and horsemanship skill
  • The Knight's Armor: chain mail, plate armor, and helmets
  • Weapons: the sword, the mace, and the lance
  • Chivalry: the code of conduct that emphasized loyalty and courtesy
  • Jousting Tournaments: the main sporting events of medieval Europe
  • Heraldry: the history, art, and study of coats of arms This fascinating volume's added features include illustrated flaps and three gatefold pockets containing cardboard press-out models for kids to assemble. One is a knight's helmet, the second is a standing knight in armor, and the third is a knight on horseback. The book's front cover shows a knight's helmet-covered face. When kids push a tab to lift the helmet's visor, they uncover the knight's face.
