24 of 25 people found the following review helpful By J. Hallam on 6 April 2009
Format: Hardcover
This beautifully illustrated book has delighted our children (both GIRLS for anyone who thinks this is just a book for boys), who return to it again and again fixatedly to study the minute pictures of the development of castles over the course of the middle ages.

The book moves through an imaginary castle's development from a wooden Norman motte and bailey, to an imposing stone keep with curtain wall, a siege and finally to a modern ruin.

As with the other books in this series we have, there's masses to look at, and the text is just enough to introduce the subject without being too much of a problem for young readers to get to grips with.

The pages are thick and sturdy, as are the flaps themselves. Although it's getting pretty heavy use, it seems to be holding up well so far.

Highly recommended.

My three and a half year old son is castle mad and he loves looking at this book. He is very keen on anything with flaps at the moment and he especially enjoys the pages on jousting and the castle attack. The book is very sturdy and should survive until he is old enough to read and discover all the little snippets of information for himself - great value to get a book that will provide pleasure for a number of years.

I ordered this for my 4 year old boy, and we are delighted with it. It was bigger and smarter than I had imagined, with secret 'advent calendar' style flaps that your child can look for, hidden in the pictures. Behind the flaps, will be scenes hidden within rooms, towers, dungeons, or behind tapestries etc, which adds to the fun.
The book traces through the development of castles, providing the educational side, but in a fun and humourous way, that will survive lots of repeat readings, I expect.
If your child has already visited some castles or expressed an interest, this is the perfect book to accompany and enhance their learning and enjoyment. If your child hasn't visited a real castle yet, I am sure this will be the perfect introduction, helping to make their first trip even more exciting and fun.

This is a wonderfully informative lift the flap book for boys aged 3-8years. The book gives detailed drawn pictures of castles, their development, inside of and castles today with lots of interesting little cameos to keep spotting. There are characters for the children to spot including Lord Simon, Tiggs the cat and Lady Eleanor plus funny incidents to muse over, creating lots of talking points for you and your child. My son, and a number of his friends have this book and its brought out time and time again to be explored and enjoyed. Highly recommended, especially for those budding knights!

I bought this book for my four year old brother (19 year age gap between us!) he us just starting to show an interest in castles, knights and stories about dragons. He loved this book, reads it at least once a week, it's so detailed we always spot something new. It's a fun way for kids to explore history without really realising they're learning as they're having fun!

Brought this book for our six year old, as he was doing about castles at school. He really enjoyed it at the time and still does.

Book this for my daughter whose class is studying the topic of castles this term at school. Brilliant quality book, sturdy. Illustrations are, as always, beautiful and great facts that tied in with the curriculum. My older son has also 'borrowed' the book and on a recent day trip to a ruined castle they were able to point out "The Keep" and the castle kitchen.

My 5 year old son loves this book, reads it nearly every night. It's great as a dip and out of book and the lift up flaps are reasonably sturdy. Supported his castles topic at school very well. Overall a great information book that shows different types of castles, and activities within castles such as jousts, my sons particular favourite is the feast page, he loves looking for the dogs and serving boys.
