Synopsis

Avoid Fighting in the First Crusade! by Fiona MacDonald

It is AD 1096 and you are a dashing young Christian knight about to travel thousands of miles to fight for your faith and defend the Holy Land. The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourages readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding the understanding of what life would have been like for a crusader. Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title the ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers. It is an ideal text for shared and guided reading for Key Stage 2 pupils within the framework of the National Literacy Strategy.
