      Although this book is marketed as a children's book, I highly recommend it for adults as well. As someone who is just becoming interested in medieval culture and castles, this was a great starting place for two-page spread is dedicated to a different subject (castle structure, jobs, entertainment, weapons, etc.).5/5(5). Another Biesty marvel, the pages thronging with detail and color, bursting at the seams from all the information per square inch, and filled with wonderful oddities secreted in the illustrations (don't miss the prisoner left to rot in the fittingly named ``forget-me-not''). Platt (Stephen Biesty's Cross-Sections: Man-O-War, , etc.) does a good job of explaining the particulars, for it is.
