5.0 out of 5 stars King of the castle, 6 April 2009
This review is from: See Inside Castles (Usborne Flap Books) (Usborne See Inside) (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.

I agree. I have 3 boys and the way shops (and some parents) gender toys drives me crazy. Castles for girls. Dolls for boys. Give them access to everything and let them choose!
