Meet Roderick - a scrawny, unremarkable teenager keeping a diary of his life in the Middle Ages. When he's chosen to become a knight on a quest to find a holy relic (the fingers of St Stephen), Roderick is determined to prove his honour and graduate from zero to hero. The hilarious Long Lost Secret Diary series put us inside the heads of hapless figures from history struggling to carry out their roles and getting things horribly wrong. The accessible, irreverent stories will keep young readers laughing as they learn the importance of not being afraid to learn from one's mistakes. Get Real! fact boxes, a timeline and glossary provide context and additional information about the historical period covered by the story. KS2 E and KS2 H
