A knight must do battle with a dragon if he is to win the hand of his beloved princess. But when a dragon finally comes along our hero realises he also needs to look his best if he is to impress, and that may take some time. And who knows what might happen as he takes his time getting ready…
James Mayhew’s cautionary tale of love, vanity and the dangers of procrastination is available once more – now in a new up-to-date format. With uncoated paper designed to show off James’s colourful pastels and watercolours, matched by an energetic text in which ‘approximately medieval royalty, peasants and animals dash about’ (Kirkus Review), this is a joyously delightful romp through the perils of self-importance.
