A: A unique book, very well made
I bought this book for my grandson, who turned 8, and he loves it! I bought the pirate version for another grandson, who is 6, with the same results. Even I enjoy going through the book, hearing all the realistic sounds, and seeing the bright, colorful scenes on the pictures! It's a quality book, and very unique. Every little boy should have one!. I think I'll switch, and get the 8 yr old the Pirate version and the 6 yr old the Knights version on their next birthdays!
B: Fabulous "Knights" Brings the Past to Glorious, Noisy Life
What a wonderful book! Open it up, and a cacophony of sound emerges: the rumble of battle. Turn a page, and you have the sweet melody of musicians playing at a banquet, the chatter of guests in the foreground, the clink of dishes in the background. This is a lively introduction to a slice of history, and the sound quality in it is the finest I've heard in an audio book of this type. I've bought it twice for the children of friends...now I want one for myself.
