Freebie of the Day: "this great historical storybook, set in 13th Century Europe, telling the stories of different boys and girls who came to learn and master different trades through apprenticeship to different craftsmen and merchant guilds. These stories run the gamut of many of the main crafts and industries of the Medieval period, including scribes, wool merchants, stained glass artisans, goldsmith, potter, goose girl, perfumer, musician, and many more. Lots of excellent illustrations with some color plates too. A wonderful 'living history' book that really brings the times to life through the stories of these young people finding their 'calling' in life, 13th Century style."
