Everyone is busy hunting and hawking, brewing and churning. “A veritable feast of a book.”—School Library Journal

This nonfiction picture book about life in medieval times features detailed illustrations to explore again and again. “A sumptuous look at the gastronomic inclinations of nobility in the Middle Ages is parlayed into a fascinating story about an upcoming visit to Camdenton Manor by the king and his large retinue.”—Booklist
