You Wouldn't Want to be a Medieval Knight! by Fiona MacDonaldYou are the son of a senior servant living in England in the 1400s. Instead of following in your father's footsteps and becoming a servant, you'd much rather become a knight! During your training, you will discover the tools of the trade, such as your armour, weapons, and horse, and get a glimpse of what it's really like to be a knight. After reading this book there will be no doubt in your mind that this is definitely armour you'd rather not wear!
