Ives, Rob Castle Attack: Make your Own Medieval Battlefield 32 pgs. (Hungry Tomato) Lerner, 2017. $8.00 NON-FICTION
This book guides readers step-by-step through the process of creating their very own Knights, Drawbridge, castle Towers, portcullis, round tower and siege tower…all adding up to a Medieval Battlefield. Lots of detailed instructions featuring simple illustrations.
This looks like a ton of fun and I love the history connection. The plastic egg knights are hilarious. Just like the launcher book in this same series, I think photographs would have absolutely made this book, ditching all the illustrations. I sort of wish DK had gotten their hands on this first. The cover is just drab and dull though, so just for that reason I probably wouldn’t seek this out to add to my library.
