BOOK TALK

 

Roland Wright has been a page at Twofold Castle for just a month and already he has impressed the King's bravest knights. Now Roland is off to his first tournament, where knights from near and far take part in a full day of jousting. He's only supposed to watch the competitors, but nut when a fearsome young page from another castle throws down a challenge, things get serious. A story for young, beginner readers with accurate details about the Middle Ages and a funny and likeable character who exhibits the characteristics of a true knight, such as being a gracious loser and respecting others, this is the perfect book for reluctant.  Boys especially will love this story of adventure, chivalry, and knighthood.
