The medieval journal of Tobias Burgess, a young page. Sent to his uncle's castle to learn to be a page, eleven-year-old Toby keeps a detailed journal of everything that happens there during the year of 1285 - from such great events as a boar hunt and a tournament to more everyday activities like baking bread and cleaning out the garderobes (toilets). The book is packed with information about medieval life and a must for any child who loves castles!

A fascinating insight into the medieval world and being written by a boy, children will identify with Toby and his experiences. It's ideal as a classroom book to flesh out learning of medieval history - and for anyone fascinated by castles * Parents in Touch *
