Come to the Castle! - Linda Ashman and S.D. Schindler

Thought it was all gorgeous long gowns, fancy food, handsome chain mail and chivalrous jousting matches? Well, Come To The Castle (Roaring Brook, $17.95) for Linda Ashman’s humorously realistic window into 13th century English life illuminated by S.D.Schindler. The food was rotten, though beautifully presented. Armor just as comfortable as one would expect. And the privies? Ages 5-9.
