Publisher's Description

"Not many, if any, children’s books on the Middle Ages and castles contain the wealth of information found in this fresh, appealing offering."
— SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL (starred review)

What was it really like to live in a castle? Step back to the Middle Ages with CASTLE DIARY: THE JOURNAL OF TOBIAS BURGESS. Eleven-year-old Toby’s vivid diary entries offer an insider’s view of day-to-day castle life, including tips on etiquette (where do you spit at a feast?) and exciting descriptions of hunting, jousting, and harvesting. Complete with glossary, index, and detailed endnotes, this is a rich look at medieval life that informs as much as it entertains.
