The Lovereading4Kids comment

September 2016 Book of the Month Little Sir Dancealot would fit right in on Strictly! This nimble-toed young knight has a novel approach to combat – he dances his enemies into submission, waltzing or jiving with them until the words ‘disco lights’ are enough to give any passing monster the frights! Then one day a dancing dragon appears and challenges Sir Dancealot to a competition – on ice. This zany idea is perfectly executed through a jolly rhyming text and lively illustrations. Kids will love the idea of Strictly with dragons, and you’ll be glad to hear that the two combatants are dancing happily together by the end – no blood on the dancefloor here! ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Sir Dancealot by Timothy Knapman

Sir Dancealot is the go-to Knight for moving on fearsome fiends! He jives away trolls and boogies aside booglesnots. He even bops off beasties! There’s no fearsome foe Sir Dancealot can't defeat with his dance moves!

But when a fire-breathing dragon arrives at the castle gates demanding a dance-off, everyone is worried. Could this be one step too far for our hero of the dance floor?
