Press reviews

“The Usborne 'See Inside' series is fantastic and 'See Inside Castles' is no exception. My son is 7, and just learning about castles as his topic at school. This book was a great introduction to castles in history, and it helped him to understand how the structures progressed from wooden structures, to fortified stone castles.”
