I tell you, all that cybernetic energy makes cyber kid 303 faster than the Millenium Falcon with a turbocharger! Here's another review from him about a very interesting-sounding book:
With all the talk about nonfiction books, the book below is the best ever about medieval jobs. Archers, Alchemists, and 98 Other Medieval Jobs You Might Have Loved or Loathed by Priscilla Galloway helped me understand more when we went to the Renaissance Festival this year. The book was written with lots of cartoon illustrations and was not boring at all. You would have hated being a gong farmer, but you'll have to read the book to find out what it is. I would have wanted to be a yeoman. What would you want to be?
Defintiely not a gong farmer. How do you raise gongs anyway? Do you plant them next to the cymbals? Or the bells? We have that book here (and at other branches of the library) and I might look at it this afternoon. I wish I'd known about it a couple of years ago when a boy asked me how much an alchemist would have made in medieval times. Well, even the great and powerful CARLMAN, who searches the farthest reaches of time and space for answers, was stumped. Fortunately, the library is even more great and powerful than me and after searching books and the Internet, I came up with an answer. This book might have had it all right there! (I think he was looking for stats on some kind of game)
