Guibert of Ghent is only 7 years old when he arrives at his uncle’s castle to become a knight and study chivalry. But learning the Ancient Code of Chivalry turns out to be a much harder and much more exciting lesson than he ever expected! Guibert’s study of chivalry leads him into adventures involving a deadly encounter with wolves, helping a lady in distress, finding new friends and new enemies, fighting a nefarious political plot against his home, helping in a desperate woodland battle, and solving a mystery with roots stretching into the era of his Viking great-grandparents.
Follow Guibert’s adventures through the Ten Commandments of Chivalry in this character study of 22 lessons for your little knights. A story lesson alternates with a practical lesson about the specific commandment Guibert is learning, applying Christian principles to everyday situations. The lessons also contain questions to think about, memory verses, reproducible coloring pages, puzzles, crafts, and practical activities to make learning chivalry even more fun!

Those bold boys and girls who set off on the path of Ancient Code Chivalry will find a challenge: but they’ll find it the path of real, Christian adventure, a path they’ll never want to turn back from!
