Join the Binkertons --- twins Josh and Emma and their pesky little sister Libby --- as they visit the Good Times Travel Agency for a trip unlike any other --- to medieval times. The trio quickly discover that medieval life isn't all knights in shining armor and stately pageants. Things go from bad to worse when the castle they're in is attacked and flaming arrows and flying cows shower down on them.
Kids will love the book's contemporary comic-book look with its zany illustrations, speech balloons and guidebook. Parents and teachers will love the well-researched story lines and solid factual information.
