The Hawk of the Castle: A Story of Medieval Falconry

Amazon.com Rating:

Join a young girl and her father, the falconer at a medieval castle, as they experience the joys of taking a goshawk out for a training flight. The girl leads readers through all the preparations and equipment needed for the flight -- from the hawk's hood and bells to the falconer's gloves -- culminating in a dramatic demonstration of the hawk's hunting skill.

Bagram Ibatoulline's masterful illustrations capture the vivid details and beauty of a day spent hawking, while Danna Smith's poetic storytelling will make readers long to experience the art and sport of falconry firsthand.

Description

" Ibatoulline’s (The Matchbox Diary) stunningly realistic acrylic and gouache scenes illustrate from all angles, offering close-ups of the hawk, pastoral panoramas, and breathtaking aerial vistas. Small rectangular insets contain factual asides about hawking, and an author’s note gives a brief history of the sport and its traditions. What young readers may appreciate most, though, is the story, beautifully presented, of the bonding between a daughter and father." — Publishers Weekly
