The Lovereading4Kids comment
A sad story of cruelty in high places gives a chilling history lesson about the power of the rich over the life and death of the poor. Sir Robert is a bad tempered master who lashes out at his servants with frightening regularity. When his violence gets out of hand, he kills Roger his stable boy. Although he escapes justice, he and even his castle after his death are haunted by Roger’s unforgiving ghost. Terry Deary’s stories make the past come alive. The Knight of Silk and Steel is also available.
Terry Deary's Knights' Tales: The Knight of Spurs and Spirits by Terry Deary
The violent and cruel Sir Robert Hylton terrorises his servants in grand Hylton Castle. Whilst they suffer from cold, hunger and his temper, Sir Robert drinks wine and sits by the fire. When his violence goes one step too far, Sir Robert uses friends and influence to escape the law.
But ghosts are known for following their own justice and Sir Robert will not find peace.
'Bubbling with wit, language play and robust dialogue...just the right mix of ingredients to trigger young readers'
