Nelly is a sniggler. Do you know what a sniggler is? It's a person who catches eels! In medieval times children did all sorts of jobs called very different things than they are today. Learn about tanners, villeins, and varlets. See how people lived in all different classes of medieval society and who could be friends with whom. Told in monologues from the children's perspectives, this is a really unique look at medieval times. The detailed illustrations are in the style of illuminated manuscripts.
