Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3–5—A cardboard portcullis on the cover slides up to lure children into entering a (generic, western European) 13th-century town populous enough to have a bridge, castle, and cathedral. Featuring static painted scenes and passages of text written in brief, declarative sentences, the flat spreads between each pop-up cover a range of topics from "Crafts and Trades" and "Homes in the City" to knightly training and daily life for both the upper and the lower classes. The former gets more play, however, as a knight named Sir Hugo functions as tour guide, injecting bland comments ("I enjoy the music and feasting at the king's banquet") while living the knightly life by participating in a tourney and various battles. The 3-D models are hard to open fully, and the castle in particular is fitted with big, clumsy connecting tabs. For quality of design and presentation, this doesn't match Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart's Castle (Scholastic, 2006), but the urban setting does add an unusual angle to a title that deserves consideration for displays and casual browsing.—John Peters, New York Public Library

Wow - this book is beautifully done.
A. Boitmann
It's colorful, informative and has some great interactive features that add to the exploration, including stain-glass windows in the pop-up cathedral.

They love this book, and I must admit, I'm taken with it too!

What a fun book to explore life as a knight through the fictitious Sir Hugo. It's colorful, informative and has some great interactive features that add to the exploration, including stain-glass windows in the pop-up cathedral. This was a great supplement in teaching about the medieval era.

The book is fascinating for the pop-ups and pictures...I took mine,cut pages out and glued them onto the inside walls of a large wooden castle, then made a moat and real drawbridge..and used the flags and windows for the outside..the 'gate' I placed on the front of my drawbridge and after painting the castle a soft grey, gave it to my grandson for his 5th birthday. He told his mother it was 'the bestest favorest present in the whole wide world!' I bought several castle books - but only THIS one was worth all I went thru to find just the right one! I then went out and bought a second one just like it!! ("But I kept this one intact for him to see all the other features! the BEST in castle books!!) The second Knight's City book went on the floor inside the wooden castle...couldn't have made such a great present without this specific book!! Five stars at least!

My boys (ages 3 1/2 and 4 1/2) are very much into knights. They love this book, and I must admit, I'm taken with it too! It's fascinating to notice additional tiny details in the pop ups when flipping through the 3rd or 4th time.
