Castle Diary

By Richard Platt

Illustrated by Chris Riddell

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!
