Joe asks Lilly the librarian to help him find more information on the Middle Ages. When she searches her computer--poof!--they travel back in time! Red, the Time Dragon, is there to help guide them. They find out that life in 1200 was pretty rough--especially if you're a dragon! They'll have to stay ahead of the angry mobs as they explore villages, castles, and cathedrals.

Think Magic Tree House for younger kids. It's cute. It's educational. It's got a touch of humor. It's awesome! This one doesn't focus on any specific persons or places, but it still gives an informational look into life in the middle ages. It's a great learning tool in the classroom or at home as kids start seeking out the non-fiction stuff from the fiction. Totally recommended. Check out the sequel below.
