This story is about Mrs. Frizzle and Arthur taking a trip back in time to a medieval castle and walking around discovering things about the lives of the different kinds of people who lived there such as peasants an knights, what kind of jobs they had, the construction of castles, some medieval war tactics, and different rooms in castles. This is all done while telling a story and illustrating the book in different sections in a comic like form. I think this book would be a really good additional material in a unit on medieval times, or to have in your library to accompany your magic school bus books, or to have for readers who enjoy informational texts a little more.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0590108204, Hardcover)

In the second of MS. FRIZZLE'S ADVENTURES, the Friz travels back in time to a medieval castle -- and teaches readers all about the Middle Ages.

With her reluctant student, Arnold, the Friz slips through a mysterious trap door -- and ends up in the Middle Ages! There, they explore a medieval castle, meeting the people who live there and learning about everyday life within the castle walls. When the castle is threatened by invaders, Arnold and the Friz don chain mail to lead the defense. They repel the invaders just in the nick of time, then they joust and feast before returning to the 21st century. With their careful research and trademark wit, Cole and Degen introduce the many facets of medieval life.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:08:07 -0400)

When Ms. Frizzle and her student Arnold follow an underground passage beneath Craig's Castle Shop and find themselves in the middle of a siege of a 12th century English castle, they learn a great deal about both castles and the Middle Ages.
