Knighthood for Beginners (Paperback)Elys Dolan (author)
- In stock
Dave's terrible (as in rubbish) at all dragony things. So when he finds a book called Knighthood for Beginners he decides to learn how to be a knight instead.
Dave sets out on a quest with his trusty steed, Albrecht the goat (all the best horses were taken), to be brave, chivalrous, and knightly in all ways. He'll be up against Sir Gnasty, who scoffs at the idea of a very small, strangely green knight and has an absolutely massive sword.
Hilarious fiction for young readers and fans of dragons, knights, and quests, from comedy genius, Elys Dolan, creator of Steven Seagull, Weasels, and Nuts in Space.
