How to be a Knight: A Squire's Companion

Dugald Steer
Jun 2006
Assuming the guise of Hector de Lance, readers become caught in a quest to rescue their assumed father, Sir Geoffrey from the clutches of the French Knight Sir Denis d�Oc who although allowing Sir Geoffrey to abode in Castle d�Oc itself rather than in the dungeon won�t abide releasing him until a ransom of �40 is paid. Sir Geoffrey, however, has a cunning plan to teach his son to become a knight, how well will you fare?

Following the high production values in terms of print, illustration, paper-engineering, design and lay-out, that Templar�s �Ology� books have become renowned for, �How to be a Knight: A Squire�s Companion� lays-out the mediaeval world of knighthood and chivalric values. Details on chivalry, on armoury, heraldry, training, questing and battles are provided. Adding colour and detail to these are lift-the-flap sections, a complete game, Squirefight, with all the pieces needed to play, a rule book on jousting a pop-up showing the strongholds of the castle gate means and devices for making an attack on enemy castles, a mini bestiary of creatures that might be encountered when questing and a short retelling of the Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

A book that enables such active participation successfully transports readers through time to live and breathe, learn and battle in the age of knights and chivalric honour. The over-arching story provides a satisfying cohesion to the work.
