Castle Diary: The Journal of Tobias Burgess
In the year 1285, eleven-year-old Toby is sent to be a page in his uncle's castle. While he's there, he records everything that happens to him so he can be sure to share it all with his mother. He writes about everything from hunts and tournaments to baking bread and cleaning out toilets. Read about his daily routines and exciting adventures from his point of view. The diary-like writing is accompanied with colorful pictures, which illustrate Toby's story. Extra notes about the medieval time period and a glossary are included in the back of the book. This book is a great way to get an up-close look at life in a medieval castle. 64 pgs. - Rachel S.
