Rhodri hates Wednesdays. Before his father left home for good, Wednesdays were something special – now they are taken up by tests and his so far unsuccessful efforts to get into the school football team. But all this changes when Rhodri meets Dylan, the collie who’s afraid of sheep, and Idris, one of King Arthur’s legendary court, who wants nothing more than to achieve his full knight status and gain a seat at Arthur’s Round Table – and the two decide to work together to achieve their aims.
