The secret diary of John Drawbridge: medieval knight in training

The secret diary of John Drawbridge: medieval knight in training

Ardagh, Philip, author; Littler, Jamie, illustrator; National Trust (Great Britain), associated with work

John Drawbridge has moved to Widemoat Castle to learn to become a knight. And there is a LOT to learn - how to charge with a lance on horseback without falling off, why the spiral staircases always go up in a clockwise direction, how to defend the castle against invading parties, and much more. So it's no wonder that John decides to keep a diary (even if it is only an imaginary one) of his time at the castle. Things REALLY liven up when the castle is attacked by an invading Welsh party - but can John foil their plot before it's too late?
