Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-5–Using a highly visual format, Macdonald introduces readers to the lives of warriors and protectors throughout history. In a format reminiscent of David Antram's You Wouldn't Want to... series (Watts), spreads cover the job requirements, weaponry, family life, money, and much more. A paragraph introduces each topic and informative captions add details. Under headings such as Can You Afford Armor? and Have You Had Your Hair Cut? interesting tidbits include such facts as Samurai had to contend with lice-infested, smelly armor, and that an Aztec warrior could not cut his hair until he had captured his first prisoner. The author also examines how a medieval knight put on a heavy suit of armor, how a Roman soldier might have prepared for battle, what dangers a Samurai might have faced, and the emblems of an Aztec warrior–just the sort of facts that will appeal to young readers. The illustrations include full-color photographs of artifacts and detailed drawings, many of which are labeled. A short quiz at the end of each book prepares youngsters for their interview, while the excellent glossaries strengthen these offerings. High-interest topics brought to life through readable texts.–Jody Kopple, Shady Hill School, Cambridge, MA

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Written directly to the reader: "...you will need many years of training...If you do well, you'll be promoted to squire. This is a responsible job." Glossary, index, further reading, other extras at the end. Lovely illustrations - I know that my 6 yr old grandson will enjoy it for many years.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very straightforward book on the Medieval Knight. It is geared toward children and gives a look into the qualifications to become a Knight, what stages of preparation were required, who could be or could not be a knight, etc. It is a fun read and very easy to get through. If you have a child interested in Robin Hood or this particular period in time, this is a great book.
