You Wouldn't Want to be in a Medieval Dungeon! by Fiona MacDonaldIt's the end of the 15th century, and your local castle is looking for a jailer. Are you up to the job? Your charges will include all sorts of people, from hardened criminals to people with mental illnesses, and you wont be expected to treat them kindly. In this brand new extended edition in the popular You Wouldn't Want to Be series, you'll soon find out what it was really like to be in a medieval dungeon! Featuring full-colour illustrations which combine humour and accurate technical detail, this new revised title includes a castle timeline, a guide to spooky castles, and some real-life grisly stories! You Wouldn't Want to Be is a constantly-growing library of over 50 exciting titles which transport the reader to the grisliest times and places in history. The first-person narrative approach puts the reader in the shoes of some of the most unfortunate people ever to have lived - from pyramid builders to viking explorers, from medieval knights to the crew of the Titanic. This approach encourages readers to get emotionally involved with the story and characters, aiding their understanding of some of the most important periods in history. Each spread comes complete with a Handy Hint box, offering a clever tip on how to survive whatever ghastly situation you've found yourself in. A complete glossary and index featured in every title makes this series an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers.
