Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2017 Spring)
In a text leveled for "beginning to read alone," five chapters explain castles' historic role as defense mechanisms, emphasizing how design evolved to protect knights, monks, and villagers in wartime. Political circumstances such as the Crusades are mentioned but largely unexplained. Well-placed, often captioned photographs introduce unfamiliar structures. Dynamic formatting (including diagrams and a mock news article) introduce additional nonfiction features. Quiz appended. Glos., ind. Copyright 2017 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
