If only they taught this at school. Perhaps we would then be amongst men and not amongst creatures of the half-arsed consumerist lagoon. ( )

Suggested age: Grades 3-5. Genre: Informational.
This book provides information on the life of knights. However, it uses a clever conceit: The reader's father has been captured and held ransom that he cannot pay. Instead, the reader's father has sent this book to teach his son to become a knight and rescue him when he has learned enough. The book uses the popular pop-up, openable, and removable features that are in many pseudo-informational books lately. This book teaches squiring, jousting, castle design basics, siege warfare, and even mentions some famous knights and legends. This would be a great book to include as a resource for students in studying life in the middle ages.

It was a very good book, full of adventures and excitement. It has a board game in it, which makes it even more fun, and a pop-up every now and then to keep you entertained. A great pop-up, pull-out book. Review by Julia Davidson, 9.

The ultimate source on becoming a knight to remember – in a handsome compendium filled with novelty features.

What if your father were held captive and it were up to you to strap on your armor and ride valiantly to his rescue? With just such occasions in mind, one noble knight pours his years of experience into this instructive volume. How to train and joust, ride off on adventure into battle, use and care for a knight’s weapons, and live by the code of chivalry–here is everything a knight-to-be could want to know. Girded with pops, flaps, booklets, and even a squire’s board game, this magnificently illustrated book, dressed in a shining foiled cover, gives courageous young squires a chance to fulfill their destiny.
