Have you ever wondered what it might be like to be a knight? This book allows you to choose your own path through many different possibilities as various kinds of knights.

My oldest especially loved this choose-your-own-adventure book. It kept him interested, even if the subject matter was a bit over his head at times.
I had a lot of fun with the book. It's a great way for kids to live history and learn to make choices. I'd recommend it for grade school level.
