Description
Welcome to a banquet at the 13th-century castle of the Earl of Daftwood. In the rhyming text and illuminated and illustrated pages of this book, readers 8 to 10 meet the lords and the ladies, the servants and the squires. But life in a medieval castle isn't always elegant—among the authentically described and pictured details are spit-polished goblets, flying silverware, and mystery meat made of animal feet.

"What is interesting here are the multiple perspectives in rhyming poems that drive the narrative and the humorous artwork filled with period details.... Endnotes offer historical facts about the roles of each of the characters, from the steward to the 'gong farmer,' whose job was to clean the privy. In fact, the gong farmer is the most captivating character in the book: his poem and illustration are laid out length-wise to show the drop from the privy to where the mess eventually ends up."—School Library Journal
