Crusaders was an interesting book because it covered a lot of what we had learned about in our project on castles and knights.
The illustrations were very detailed and interesting.I also learned a lot of new words as I worked my way through the story.
I would give this book 5 out of 10 because the story was too boyish for me.

I really enjoyed this book because there were lots of interesting diagrams of the weapons used in battle. I liked the book because we had done a project in class about knights and castles and this linked to the previous work we had done. The pictures were very detailed, especially the people's clothes.
I would give this book 10 out of 10.

I really liked this book because it told me about the life of a Crusader and how hard it must have been for them in battle. It also told me about the weapons that the Crusaders used to win their battles. I liked the illustrations because they told me how hard it was for the Crusaders in their long difficult journeys across land and sea and how hard they fought in their battles. I would recommend this book.

I liked Crusaders because the battles were well described and the illustrations were very good. It must have been very difficult being a crusader travelling long distances to foreign lands and fighting the muslims. I would recommend this book as it is very interesting and gives lots of facts.

This book was really exciting because it gave me interesting facts about the Crusaders and how they tried to capture Jerusalem back from the Muslims. It tells you about all the weapons they used for example, siege towers. It told you how tough and strong the Crusaders were and also about the long hard journey to the Holy Lands that they made. Fantastic Read! 10/10
