Reader Reviews

My son started loving castles thanks to this book
My 3 years old son was just interested in cars and truck but "In the castle" opened his mind and now he wants me to play jousting all the time with wooden spoons! Beautiful illustrations. Perfect for foreign little readers. Marina & Matteo from Italy
