    Unfortunately, many of us will never step foot into a true, centuries-old castle. Even those who can vacation in these historic spots don’t experience the structures in the ways of the people living back yonder (unless you own a time machine!). For these people, Stephen Biesty takes readers inside castles in, “Cross Sections: Castle”. “Cross Sections: Castle” is intended to strike the fancy of children but certainly appeals to adults interested in the topic, as a sort-of coffee table b [...]

    One reason I don't like this book is that it is not well sourced, and does little to encourage me to look and read outside this text at all. No consultation with historians, librarians, or other experts is cited. The virtue of the unique illustrated cross sections give this book a lot of reasons to stand alone, but it's not right for Biesty to hide his research. Shouldn't this have been what DK added for a 2013 edition? This dragged the book down to a 3 from a 4 for me. Anyway, Biesty's cross-se [...]

    Quite An Interesting Insight Into A Great Structure.

    This book lent me countless hours of imaginative entertainment as a kid. Superb illustrations and detail.

    This appears to be a children's book, and I think elementary children who are reading well would especially enjoy this. The pictures and information are very good. It gives good detail about the physical elements of a castle and how they were used.

    Stephen Biesty's Cross-Sections CastleThis book provides a lot of insight on castles. It covers topics such as the parts of a castle, the castle gate, preparing for an attack, the feudal system, clothing, the noble family, entertainment, and food supply. It has many illustrations on what a castle could possibly look like. I can connect this book with Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George. This book is about Princess Celie who lives in a castle with her family. These books connect because [...]

    This is one of the coolest books I have ever brought home from the library. The detail is amazing. Many times I found myself lost on a page, going over every little bit. Recommended for children starting around age 6 or 7, though it would varry depending on the child's attention span and reading level.

    An almost overwhelming introduction to medieval life that will either satisfy a child's curiosity or fan it. The information is fairly general but is in keeping with being a children's book. My children and I enjoyed the drawings and text and could have spent hours with it.

    Without a doubt the best of Biesty. I spent so many hours with my face an inch or two above these beautifully detailed pages. Oh yea, and in case you're familiar with the author's other works: the Biesty caught/seen-on-the-john tradition continues here.

    One of my favorite books when I was a kid. I loved the break down on how everything works. I still do. Taking things apart and putting them back together is still pretty enjoyable.Great book for any kid who is curious!

    The cross sections book in this edition is about medieval castles and buildings.The book is good for cross referencing and just fun reading.Cross sections once agian is good for projects because it shoes the designs of castles.

    The art is mostly too small and cluttered to be useful. Moreover, with the castle in question being a generic one (not specific to culture, region, or time), the information is a mishmash that is too often only partially correct. This is, to date, the worst DK book I have seen.

    I loved the detailed and intricate illustrations in this book. It really helps to give a flavor of what life could have been like inside a castle.

    Read this as a follow-up to a bigger look at castles; it helped.Good.

    My kids LOVE this cross section books with all the details.

    A delightful book on castles. Prepared for children, there is much more imagery than text.

    These cross section books are fantastic and fun to look at and read. This one about castles is excellent. Explains everything from bathrooms to cow catapulting.
