This was such a neat book, and I love the story about how it came to be. It was born out of a classroom project, where the author, a librarian at a school, wrote a series of monologues for a class studying the Middle Ages. The characters in this collection of mini-stories, which are loosely linked, range from a lord's nephew, to working class children such as a falconer and a glassblower's apprentice, to a beggar. There are useful notes in sidebars throughout to explain Medieval terms that may be unclear or obscure. The illustrations really make this book -- done very much in the fashion of Middle Age miniatures.
