    You stumble upon on ancient castle, blocking your progress. But what a coincidence! 3 other knights had the same idea, and they need to get through too… In Keys to the Castle, players compete to be the first knight to escape the castle by traversing its many locked rooms. Each player begins his or her turn by drawing cards. These cards are generally color-coded keys, but can also be a variety of helpful items. Players then play one of their cards, opening an adjacent door of their choice and moving – or locking a door behind them to slow down other players! Other helpful devices allow players to hacksaw through barred doors, set up padlocks to further sabotage their opponents, and even find secret passages to speed their progress. The first player to the opposite side of the castle wins! For 2-4 players. 10-20-minute playtime.

    A rich tale of one of King Arthur's most noble knights, Sir Gawain. This tale is full of warriors, romance, battles, and many other adventures. Also housed in this volume are two other works, Pearl, and Sir Orfeo. An unknown medieval poet originally wrote all 3 of these stories, but these retellings by J.R.R. Tolkien bring the stories to life while retaining the artistic language.

    Condensing the most exciting part of chess into a puzzle game, Solitaire Chess gives you 10 pieces (a king, queen, and two knights, rooks, pawns, and bishops) and 40 challenges. Your goal is to have only one piece left, but there are some rules – you can only move in accordance with traditional chess rules, and you have to capture a piece with every move. Fast-paced and requiring an ample amount of forethought and carefulness, this game would be excellent for chess aficionados or logic puzzle lovers alike. ~ Mark

       Learn about portraits, still lifes, landscapes, sculpture and loads more terms/concepts as you follow a silly presentation of some serious art! There aren’t many art books that are a funny read. It is just full of interesting little nuggets! Did you know that for thousands of years artists used a color called mummy brown (made from actual mummies)? As you read, there are lots of activities for the reader to complete that have to do with that page’s theme: when learning about color tones, you will color in the same little picture with a warm and cool color palette to notice how they feel different to the viewer. Four pages of stickers make it even more interactive! I think students who love art would enjoy this book, but it would also introduce the non-artist to some great information! Some of the famous artists include: Van Gogh, Lowry, Kusama, Lichtenstein, Klee, Rousseau and many more. 80pp, 8.5” x 11”, pb.  ~Sara

    A highly unusual encounter between an American B-17 bomber and a German fighter over World War II Germany. Bomber pilot Charlie Brown and his crew are on their first mission, and things aren’t going well. Anti-aircraft fire and German fighter machine guns have taken a heavy toll, with half the crew dead or injured. Sub-zero air is streaming through the splintered nose, part of the tail has been blasted away, controls barely respond, and only one of the four engines is operating reliably. Brown barely pulls the bomber out of a steep dive at treetop level and hopes to limp back to base in England. German ace Franz Stigler spots the plane at low altitude and plans to shoot it down, as he had brought down others during his hundreds of missions. Instead, overcome by a sense of chivalry at the sight of the helpless opponent, the modern-day Teutonic knight decides to risk court martial and a firing squad to help. A rare act of human decency in the midst of the bloodshed and carnage of war. 392 pgs, sc. ~ Bob

    Now you can enjoy Catan with dice! A double-sided, color maps with score tracks features two different ways to play. Each sheet holds a map of Catan at the bottom and a building guide and scoring area at the top. The maps show a pre-set path of roads, settlements and cities, which have to be built in order, though you can choose different routes, and six knights around the outside. On the first scenario (which I favor!), each item to build is marked with a value of victory points that you receive for building it, with the values getting progressively higher as you move further around the map. Each player gets 15 turns to make as much progress as he can by rolling the six dice up to three times per turn in hopes of tossing the right combination of resources to build items. The second scenario has the same map but there are no values on the building items; the point system is the same as the board game, and you can also achieve largest army and longest road as you try to be the first player to reach 10 victory points. Includes 6 dice; pen/pencil for scoring not included. Also includes a QR code for playing directions. - Steph

    The 14-year old daughter of a knight, Catherine records daily events from her perspective in her diary. This humorous piece of historical fiction shares what life was like during the medieval times for an ordinary girl - if you can call Catherine ordinary. Full of spunk and stubbornness, Catherine writes of the various ploys and schemes she uses to ward off those her father wishes to betroth her to. The common villagers have a say in who they marry, why can't she?

Thirteen of the original tales are included: The Knight's Tale, The Miller's Tale, The Nun's Priest's Tale, The Reeve's Tale, The Scholar's Tale, The Wife of Bath's Tale, The Pardoner's Tale, Sir Topas, The Franklin's Tale, The Magistrate's Tale, The Canon's Yeoman's Tale, The Friar's Tale, and The Merchant's Tale. This is a great retelling of a medieval classic. 114 pgs, pb.
