KIRKUS REVIEW

Twelve stories to bring our children understanding of the lives and adventures of boys and girls in the Middle Ages with each one laid at the time of a turning point in European history. There are Gaius, the Celtic boy,at the time of the union with the Angles and Saxons; Remy, the French boy who sang for Charlemagne; Geoffrey who lived at the time of Magna Carta; and so forth. Fascinating side-lights on various periods, well done. Probably more for school use than gift sale.
