How It Works
David MacAulay

David MacAulay’s pen-and-ink illustrations show the detail and beauty of medieval castles in this first of a new series for beginning readers. The planning, construction, and building of the castle is described for Level 4 readers. Fun details are included – a guard stops to use the toilet, a cross-section of a battering ram is illustrated. Caldecott-winning MacAulay (Black and White, 1990) has successfully combined his unique illustrations with fascinating facts for new readers. Ages 7-8
