The Lovereading4Kids comment
A brilliantly exciting series from the pen of the master of books that are funny as well as based on historical events. Terry Deary has no equal in his ability to make history fun, whether it’s through his Horrible History Series or through this Knights’ Tales series. Sticks and Straw is set in Castile, Spain in 1099. A moment in history when the city must be saved but can Cristina, a cowardly serving girl, find her courage to help save the city? Full of humour it’s perfect for encouraging reading with those children who are just beginning to explore reading alone. It’s also a great book to read aloud to your children.
Other titles in the Knights’ Tale series include, The Knight of Silk and Steel, The Knight of Spurs and Spirits and The Knight of Swords and Spooks
Terry Deary's Knights' Tales: The Knight of Sticks and Straw by Terry Deary, Helen Flook
Cristina is just a frightened servant girl who works in the palace. Until, that is, she gets tangled up in a cunning plot. She will be crucial in the success of the great knight El Cid's last battle and the safety of the entire city against the attacking Berbers. She will have to find new depths of courage to play her part. An unusual tale, based on a real medieval knight, this story is full of Terry Deary's dark humour and dry wit.
