From School Library Journal

"Gr 2–4-This romp through medieval times is an easy selection for kids interested in the time period. Each two-page chapter is packed with a variety of images and features that accompany the main text: photos, cartoons, extra fact boxes in the shape of shields, LEGO figures that carry on an amusing but informative side plot, labels, captions, and many activity-based "Build It" suggestions that match the chapter topic. Brief descriptions of legendary folks, such as King Arthur, Saint George, Edward the Black Prince, El Cid, and Roland the Jester, are also included. Students hungry for facts about knights and castles won't be disappointed. Those with no prior knowledge of this subject will likely be drawn in, too, thanks to the popularity of the franchise and the overall bright design. VERDICT For libraries using learning stations or ones with fully launched maker spaces, this book is ideal for encouraging exploration and creativity.-Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT"
