Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-4?A fast-paced, highly visual format is the vehicle that propels this reasonably successful presentation of facts about the Middle Ages. The trekkers, Lucy, Jools, Sam, and Eddie, are friends who travel through time via Lucy's grandfather's time machine. The story line that follows their adventures is accompanied by colorful, cartoonlike illustrations. On each double-page spread are at least two insets called "gizmos." The gizmo represents an electronic, hand-held device possessed by each of the four children and provides information falling within five color-coded categories?science, places and people, history and arts, cross sections, and definitions of terms. A "Gizmo Puzzler" at the end poses questions that require readers to revisit the illustrations and peruse them in more detail. Readers are also asked to track Jools's frog's whereabouts?an amphibian Waldo of sorts. A brief historical overview of the period is appended. Though this title has drawbacks (occasional Briticisms and typographical errors), it does have the potential to stimulate further inquiry. Though not a first choice for information, the book should have some appeal for younger students and primarily visual learners.?Celia A. Huffman, Worthington Public Library, OH

The king gives land to barons who give land to knights and small plots to peasants. There was no plumbing. 470 AD the ancient world ended. The Black Death killed 25 million people. 1453 the Middle Ages ended.
