The Story Book Knight by Helen Docherty



Leo is a mouse, but no ordinary mouse; he's a knight, with his very own sword and shield. Although Leo is a knight, he doesn't like to fight, he would much rather sit and read. His parents are determined to change all this by encouraging him to tame a dragon that is causing fear and chaos throughout the land. Reluctantly Leo leaves on his adventure but not without some special books.

Before Leo finds the dragon he encounters a griffin and a troll and instead of reaching for his sword and shield, he reaches for a book. When Leo comes face to face with the terrifying dragon, he knows just what to do. Not only does he get the dragon to clean up his mess in the town but Leo becomes the hero of all. You'll have to read the book to discover how Leo accomplishes this, but make sure you have a small child on your lap, this book will become a favourite that will be read over and over.

The Story Book Knight is a fun book written in rhyme and has been approved by the reader's 2 year old grand-daughter!
