Synopsis

See Inside Noisy Castles by Katie Daynes

This classic flap book in the See Inside series is brought to life with a new sound panel. It offers a humorous yet historically accurate look at life in a Thirteenth Century medieval castle. Inventive embedded flaps on each double-page spread allow children to explore the hidden world of the castle, peeking inside stables, tents, and carriages along the way. Young readers are taken on an exciting journey in which they encounter a magnificent banquet, a thrilling tournament and a dramatic siege. Sounds help bring the pictures to life. Children won't be able to resist pushing the buttons to hear the royal trumpeters playing, the noblemen on their horses, the drawbridge rising and the jousting tournament begin. David Hancock's bright, detailed illustrations combined with informative and friendly text, provide children with an entertaining insight into life long ago.
