About this title
This lively and interactive title takes young readers behind the scenes of what went into the making of grand cathedrals during medieval times. Full color.From Booklist:
The You Wouldn’t Want To . . . series has long been taking the stuffing out of both relatively glamorous personages (Cleopatra) and obviously doomed career choices (Salem witch). A bit of reverse psychology here and loads of irresistible historical details there combine with cartoony visuals and glib humor to make these titles plenty educational but just plain fun to read as well. Architectural details abound in You Wouldn’t Want to Work on a Medieval Cathedral! which takes readers through years of apprenticeship, backbreaking labor as a journeyman, and finally a plum spot as master stonemason working on the Canterbury Cathedral. A few design tweaks, such as boxing and ordering some of the many blocks of texts competing for attention, would help the pages seem less cluttered, but these books are great treats to reward historically inquisitive minds. Grades 3-5. --Ian Chipman
