    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.

    It's easy to take a trip back in time with this story-like book full of gorgeously illustrated knights and castles! Reprinted from a 1957 children's book, this title by Jack Coggins explores the fact and fiction surrounding medieval knights, what life was like during medieval times, medieval weapons and suits of armor, how castles were used as defenses and how they were attacked, the battles and crusades that the knights fought in, tournaments, hunting, the knight's code of honor, and much more. The text is large and easy-to-read, and the illustrations (by the author) are full of detail and drama. In true retro fashion, pages alternate between full-color illustrations and black-and-white illustrations. Because it reads more like a story than a "topic book" which has been picked apart and over-organized, readers can wander though the book and enjoy the whole history and lifestyle of medieval knights that is offered. 105 pages, pb. - Jess

    The knight in shining armor! It's hard to imagine a more masculine image. The knight embodied loyalty, courage, leadership, honesty, self-discipline, integrity, and perseverance. Author Robert Lewis wants to renew the vision that medieval fathers had for their sons. His desire stems from disappointment in his own upbringing from an "absentee" father, and he hopes that fathers today will not make the same mistake. Lewis outlines steps to bring our sons along the path to manhood just as the knights had a prescribed course of training. And just as ceremony marked the graduation of a young man from squire to knight, Lewis offers ideas for ceremonies to celebrate the passing of our sons into manhood. Consider these ideas as we prepare our sons to serve the King. 194 pgs, pb.
