Dragons have invaded Crumbling Castle, and all of King Arthur's knights are either on holiday or visiting their grannies. It's a disaster!

Luckily, there's a spare suit of armour and a very small boy called Ralph who's willing to fill it. Together with Fortnight the Friday knight and Fossfiddle the wizard, Ralph sets out to defeat the fearsome fire-breathers.

But there's a teeny weeny surprise in store . . .

Fourteen fantastically funny stories from master storyteller Sir Terry Pratchett, full of time travel and tortoises, monsters and mayhem!

MEDIA REVIEWS
Funny, action-packed . . . a rip-roaring read. * The Sun *
Full of [Pratchett's] burgeoning wit and wordplay . . . A delightful romp. * Sunday Times *
A splendid collection . . . rumbustious, irreverent and hilarious. * Booktrust *
A good choice for the chapter-book set, this is highly recommended for reading aloud to younger children as well . . . Pratchett's vast, all-ages fan base will be intrigued by these early offerings, while their accessibility and skillful storytelling will pull in young newcomers to the masterful author's work. * Booklist *
Charming and funny . . . Accompanied by Beech's wiry Quentin Blake-like illustrations, as well as numerous typographical flourishes, this volume will please both its intended audience and older Pratchett completists. * Publishers Weekly *
