History comes alive in this incredible children's illustrated book about castles. Slicing through different areas of a medieval fortress, extraordinary views reveal the people busy inside, preparing for battle as an enemy army approaches. Packed with facts, you'll find out what it takes to build a massive 14th-century castle, dress a knight in armor, or prepare a feast fit for a king or queen. From the drawbridge to the dungeon, Cross-Sections Castle swarms with the people who keep the castle going--the workers, craftsmen, and servants. And, as you pore over every page, look out for the villainous spy. Is he in the well... the keep... the moat? No? Keep looking, he's there somewhere! Back in print after 20 years, you can now cheer on jousters, be entertained by a troubadour, and witness the gory details of a traitor's demise. This unique illustrated book for kids is not just the story of a castle; it brings medieval history to life.

Discover the secrets of ancient Egypt, the land of the pharaohs. Find out what's inside a mummy, how fast a chariot could race, and what weapons the Egyptian soldiers carried. From School Library Journal: Gr 2-4–Short, two-page chapters provide straightforward facts about these featured topics. Each book contains two- to three-sentence paragraphs along with color photographs of places and artifacts on each spread. Egyptian Treasures describes antiquities and customs. Extreme Places presents a variety of radical locations inhabited by humans, such as the coldest and hottest, wettest and driest, most polluted, most remote, and earthquake and flood zones. Roman Soldier's Handbook provides reenactments of battles and prepares readers as if they were to join the Roman Army and what to expect during their term of service. What the Romans Did for the World explains that the ancient Romans introduced the Celts to their language, eating utensils, baths, and toilets. It includes present-day photos of some historic architecture and objects. Sporadically placed factual tidbits jump off each page, making the books entertaining enough for pleasure reading.
