The Big Book of Knights, Nobles & Knaves Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Magical lands inhabited by fire-breathing dragons, clever wizards casting their spells, valiant kings and gallant knights fighting for right, sly knaves eager to betray, kidnapped queens and maidens trapped in towers, merry bandits, and more: this is the entrancing stuff of which medieval legends are made. With plenty of adventure, excitement, and romance on every page, this collection of classic tales will captivate young readers.

As with the two former books in the series, The Big Book of Knights, Nobles and Knaves is exquisitely designed. It features an eye-catching cover with die-cuts in the shape of castle windows, as well as breathtaking illustrations and action-packed panoramic spreads throughout. The 11 timeless storiesand#151;expertly abridged for maximum excitement and funand#151;include The Knights of the Round Table; Lancelot, the Knight of the Cart; Robin Hood; The Song of Roland; and Tristan and Isolde.

Synopsis:

Knights wore the finest armor, followed a strict code of chivalry, and swore an oath to the King. See what it took to become one of these nobles, from page to esquire to the final ceremony of anointing. Follow their training, examine their weapons and armor, and learn about the lavish jousts and other tournaments that were a regular part of a knightand#39;s life.
