Usborne Young Reading: The Story of Castles

“What I need,” said a lord one day, “is a castle!” So he built the very first one. His idea soon spread. But why did people need castles? What was it like to live in one? And why did castles go out of fashion? From the first wooden tower to the crumbling ruins you see today, find out! A fascinating hardback book for developing readers, with vibrant colour pictures, a ribbon marker and an audio CD to listen to.
