You might be under the impression that a knight has a glamorous life. The truth of the matter is that knights are very busy people. They have to do so many things; like getting the queen’s crown (which involves running up and down a lot of stairs), and taking it to her. Knights also have to practice marching, and they guard the castle, always on the lookout “for trouble.”

Sometimes that trouble comes in the form of dragons. As you must know, dragons are very big creatures, and by comparison knights are rather small. Somehow the knights in the castle are going to have to make sure that the dragons do not get in.

Young children and their grownups are going to love this funny and clever little story. You may think that you know what it going to happen next, but the truth of the matter is that you don’t. The solution to the dragon invasion turns out to be very unexpected indeed.

This board book is packed with bright colorful artwork and there is a fabulous fold-out denouement at the end of the tale.
