Product description

John Drawbridge has moved to Widemoat Castle to learn to be a knight. And there’s a LOT to learn! How to charge with a lance on horseback. Why spiral staircases always go up in a clockwise direction. Why the plates served at banquets are made of stale bread (and why you shouldn’t eat them.). So it’s no wonder that John decides to keep a diary. It’s the only way he’ll remember it all! But when the castle is attacked by Welsh invaders, can John foil their plot before it’s too late?

  • A fresh and funny fictional diary with a historical setting
  • Written by Roald Dahl Funny Prize winner Philip Ardagh
  • Full of zany jokes, witty illustrations and authentic facts
  • Supports the curriculum and awakens an interest in history

“Completely engrossing – if you want to know about life in a medieval castle, then look no further!” Parents in Touch

A fun and informative look at what life might have been like in a medieval castle.” The Week Junior
