About the Author:

RICHARD PLATT is an avid fan of castles and the author of many innovative and best-selling books for children, including CROSS SECTIONS: CASTLE, illustrated by Stephen Biesty.

Chris Riddell is one of the most acclaimed children's book illustrators in the United Kingdom. In addition to his skill as an illustrator, he brings to CASTLE DIARY a wicked sense of humor, perhaps the result of his years as a political cartoonist.

From Library Journal:

Grade 4-8-In this oversized, wonderfully illustrated diary, Tobias Burgess, an 11-year-old page, describes daily life in a castle during the course of a year. Although the number of incidents he describes (a jousting tournament, a friend being knighted, his own illness that results in bloodletting by a "physician," and others) seems a bit forced in order to capture as much about life in a medieval castle as possible, readers will enjoy the child's language and descriptions. The large format allows for numerous, detailed ink-and-watercolor illustrations. An outstanding section in the back presents additional information and drawings. Not many, if any, children's books on the Middle Ages and castles contain the wealth of information found in this fresh, appealing offering.
