Synopsis

The Short And Bloody History Of Knights by John Farman

Generally regarded as a gentlemanly profession, after extensive research John Farman has discovered the terrible truth about the life of your average Knight. To start with there's the uniform. A suit of armour not only cost the earth in medieval times but it probably weighed more than a small planet when you put it on. Best not to mention the chain-mail underwear that was considered the height of fashion at the time. There was danger involved in everything a Knight was asked to do. Saving maidens was no mean feat (sometimes they didn't want to be saved!) and jousting might have made a nice day out for all those bored princesses and peasants but lances were pretty lethal, especially if you can't see where you're going in your visor. And I haven't even begun to tell you the real truth about dragons

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love lovereading4kids because I’ve read amazing books I would never have picked up, and its opened doors to new genre’s I now love.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
