Avoid Being a Medieval Knight by Fiona MacDonald

The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourages readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding the understanding of many aspects of medieval life, including education, social structure and religion. Informative captions, a comprehensive glossary and an index makes this title an ideal fun introduction to the conventions of non-fiction text. This is an ideal text for shared and guided reading for Key Stage 2 pupils within the framework of the National Literacy Strategy. It helps achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum.
