Knights and Castles by Tamara Fonteyn


Knights and Castles by Tamara Fonteyn

This beautiful activity book offers little aficionados of knights and castles 24 pages of colouring and discoveries. Every page or double page introduces a new theme belonging to the heydays of knights: a castle and its inhabitants, a dungeon, the upbringing of a knight, a knighting ceremony, weapons and armours, tournaments, battles, a siege of a castle and its defence, a medieval feast, and a marriage to a princess. Several hundred characters, sites and objects are drawn and named on the pages of this activity book much like in a picture word book or children's encyclopaedia. The exciting world of knights and castles is to discover, colour and study. The pictures are remarkable; realistic yet poetic, they depict knights in intricate settings right out of their distant times. They will inspire the imagination of children, develop their knowledge and add to the pleasure of colouring. Thanks to the thick paper, this book lends itself to the use of different colouring techniques, including felt-tip pens.
