Both reluctant and enthusiastic young readers will find themselves thoroughly engrossed in this new interactive medieval history adventure because they’ll find it very easy to imagine that they are actually present in that long-ago time.

With three story paths, 45 choices and twenty-one endings, readers can choose who they are, what they do and what outcome their adventure will have. Their story can end successfully or badly, depending on the choices they have made. Directions are given at the bottom of each page, and after one path is finished, readers can go back and read the others for more adventure and an alternative adventure.

Fans of the popular “Choose Your Own Adventures” will easily recognize the format used so effectively in this interactive history adventure and others in the same series (World War II Spies, “The Aztec Empire and Ancient China).

Stories of the knights, kings, queens and castles of the Middle Ages have always held a special appeal for children, and this book will fascinate as well as inform. Illustrations, a timeline, glossary and other factual content about this time in history are included.
