Book Description

1 Aug 2011 Usborne Picture Books
This is a new paperback edition of this charming title in the popular and expanding "Usborne Picture Books" series, which introduces very young children to key subjects in a friendly and informative way. Young children will be enthralled as they follow the imaginative adventures of a little boy who is whisked back in time as he plays in the ruins of a castle, only to find himself transported to the hustle and bustle of the building in its heyday - complete with jousts, banquets and valiant deeds. The delightful illustrations of Benji Davies evoke all the magic and wonder of life in an historic castle, while the simple accompanying text both engages and informs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book for reluctant readers 23 May 2007
By Free Spirit VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My [...]son was learning about castles at school so I wanted to have a book which gave some back up to school but in a relaxed manor. The pictures are brightly coloured and nicely drawn for young children. The text and the story were quite simple but they got the main points across effectively. This book did catch the interest of my son who is not a "book" person. I would recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative and interesting 11 Mar 2009
By Weenana
Format:Hardcover
'In the Castle' is a lovely book for young children. Clear bright pictures with a simple informative explanation of life in and around a castle. My three-year-old tear-away grandson loves this series of books and loves the Benji Davies illustrations. Lots of interesting things to look at and discuss. He similarly loves 'On the Moon' and 'On a Pirate Ship'. All the books in this series have solid, padded, hard covers and quality thick pages inside. We initially borrowed the books from the Library, but he loved these three titles so much I bought them. Bargain prices from Amazon and free postage to boot. Delivered within two days of the order being placed.

As a teacher, I chose this book to read to my preschool classes as an introduction to the theme of Kings and Queens. It is perfectly suited for their age and has all the right vocabulary. They thoroughly enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a small book with paper pages 27 Jan 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
.....my mistake as bought for a 2 yr old. I thought like many usbourne books it was going to have thicker pages. Few words on the page, probably better for an older child learning to read.
