Eustace was a naughty monk who lived in France during the Middle Ages. Monks usually spent their time praying and reading the bible and being good, but Eustace was not like that at all! People told lots of stories about Eustace because he had such an exciting life. Can you guess which of these stories are true and which are made up? This engaging and enjoyable book for younger readers tells an intriguing story with an educational twist. Exploring the life of a real historical figure through verifiable accounts and fictional stories from the time, this colourful tale provides a fascinating and fun way of introducing children to the medieval period. With its simple language and bright illustrations, it is particularly suitable for reading with young children or for early readers to try on their own. KATHRYN BEDFORD was born and grew up in Kent, and completed BA, MA and PhD degrees at Durham University in the departments of Classics, History, Modern Languages and English. She describes herself as "chronically interdisciplinary" and loves to explore the borderlands between disciplines.

During her PhD she developed a fascination with public engagement and the dissemination of historical knowledge to a broad audience, focusing particularly on comedy and drama as ways to make the learning experience as interactive as possible.
