The Hawk of the Castle

A Story of Medieval Falconry

Written by Danna Smith, Illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline

Beautifully written, beautifully illustrated.
Interest in birds of prey will deepen after reading this book; the information about falcons and other birds of prey will make you want to learn more.
It is written in verse, with simple text for younger readers and more information in smaller text for older children or teachers to explain more.
In the Author’s Note there is more information about the need for falcons and the class of people that owned the different species of falcons.
