Castle Diary: The Journal of Tobias Burgess

Postby Baron Greenbriar » Tue Nov 30, 2010 2:57 am

Hi everyone :wave: I'm new but on the topic of Medieval Life I've got something to share. I just read this wonderful book called Castle Diary: The Journal of Tobias Burgess by Richard Platt and illustrated by one of my all time favorite illustrators Chris Riddell. It has a lot to say on this topic and chronicles the journey of a young castle page Toby and his life in the medieval world. Just curious if anyone has heard of or read it? If so I know you'll agree with me and If not you might want to check it out.

Here's a link for further reference:

Even though its listed as a children's book theres a lot anyone can glean from it and the writing is definitely WAY above a preschool level if thats what your thinking. It really is more of a book for Young adults as that is the protagonist of the story anyway.

I realize this may seem like it should go in the story forum but if you look at this book it really has a lot to teach you about medieval life and the characteristics of the time and that is why I believe it belongs here.

Cool, but there's a thing called the edit button, use it. Admins and Mods do not like double posting.

Thanks! Too bad there isn't a good delete button. :(
