The Thrifty Guide to Medieval Times

By: Jonathan W. Stokes


The kid-friendly series that makes history approachable, engaging, and funny! From the publishing house that brought you the Who Was? books.

The Thrifty Guide to Medieval Times: A Handbook for Time Travelers is a snappy, informative, illustrated travel guide with everything the sensible time traveler needs to know, like:

* Where I can find the best hovel?
* What are my healthcare options if I catch the Black Plague?
* How can I avoid being attacked by pillaging Huns?
* And most importantly, why on earth would anyone want to travel back to medieval times?

This book is designed as a parody of Fodor’s guides, complete with humorous maps, reviews of places to stay and top attractions (don’t miss a jousting tournament . . . but watch out for lances!), and tips on whom to have lunch with (murderous Queen Olga of Kiev, naturally–just don’t eat or drink anything around her!).

If you had a time travel machine and could take a vacation anywhere in history, this is the only guidebook series you would need.
