This is not the typical book I have discussed here. It is not a story but a visual. You open it all the way until the two covers meet revealing a 3D pop-up of a medieval castle. Doors open from one room to the next, as well as closets, treasure hidden under carpets, and even secret passages behind tapestries! It also has a working portcullis and several punch-out figures including knights, ladies and a dragon. This is great fun and a good way to familiarize yourself with medieval castles. This has been a big hit with my boys.
