This is a book of mostly monologues about medieval life (subtitle is Voices From a Medieval Village). It is by Laura Amy Schlitz and illustrated by Robert Byrd.

I read one monologue a day to my children. Content wise I would say any child old enough to listen will be okay.

It was written to be performed instead a play so each child would have a meaty yet brief role.

We found it charming and a very nice addition.
