Part of the impressive "Picture That!" series for young readers, Knights & Castles utilizies paintings from famous European artists such as Jean Fuquet, Pieter Bruegel the Young, and Paolo Uccello to illustrate Alex Martin's informed and informative text about life in the mid-fourteenth century. Describing the life of a knight in 1350, Knights & Castles goes into fascinating historical detail about jousting, courting a lady, hunting deer, and more. Sidebars offer tidbits of information about the artists who created the classical works used to illustrate daily life nearly seven hundred years ago. Fascinating reading for the young and old alike, and highly recommended.
