Dive into Medieval times with the fun pictures, easy-to-follow descriptions and amazing pop-ups inside A Knight’s City.

Facts and Fun

Are you fascinated by Medieval times? By knights, swords, jousting and battles? Or are you studying the Medieval era in school? Either way, A Knight’s City is a great resource. The book is filled with facts about city and country life, as well as side notes from a young page who’s training to become a knight. Each page has colorful pictures complete with descriptions explaining who’s in the photo and what they’re doing so you can get the full, easy-to-follow experience.

Amazing Pop-ups

And the best part? The pop-ups, of course! The book contains three striking pop-ups—a bridge, the castle and a cathedral—some with secret flaps and hidden compartments. To the right of the pop-ups, you’ll find a key (or legend) describing the pictures and symbols found on each pop-up.


County and City Life

Each page lets you explore a different aspect of life in a Medieval city. You’ll learn the social order, from King to peasant. You’ll experience country life where peasants work hard raising cattle and growing crops. You’ll witness the city life where people must face poor road conditions and avoid the smelly sewage that lines the streets. You’ll take a look inside the merchant’s homes and see what their walls and roofs are made of, how they cook and how they dispose of their personal waste. Gross!


A Knight’s Life

You’ll also experience the fun and challenging life of a knight—everything from jousting tournaments to deadly battle. You’ll get the inside scoop on war weapons, such as spears and steel swords, and how they protect the castle when its under siege. And after the battle is won, you’ll join the knights as they celebrate with the Lords of the manor. You’ll learn about the arts and entertainment, such as jugglers, acrobats, and elaborate masks and costumes.


The Bottom Line

A Knight’s City is a fantastic interactive read. It’s a fun and easy way to learn about Medieval times, as well as study for tests or prepare for school projects. The book is perfect for a visual learner.
