Castle Diary: The Journal of Tobias Burgess, Page
transcribed by Richard Platt;  illuminated by Chris Riddell

What was it really like to live in a castle? Step back to the Middle Ages with this book. Eleven-year-old Toby’s vivid diary entries offer an insider’s view of day-to-day castle life, including tips on etiquette (where do you spit at a feast?) and exciting descriptions of hunting, jousting, and harvesting. Complete with glossary, index, and detailed end notes, this is a rich look at medieval life that informs as much as it entertains."Not many, if any, children’s books on the Middle Ages and castles contain the wealth of information found in this fresh, appealing offering."  (School Library Journal)
