The Lovereading4Kids comment

A wittily told and unusual story about the chivalrous world of knights, squires, damsels and challenges. When a stranger comes into the tavern claiming that he is a knight but wearing a long dress the villagers don’t know what to make of him. But they are soon spellbound by the story of his fight for Venus, the goddess of love. Carefully crafted and simply told with strong illustrations to match, this is an excellent book for younger readers. Terry Deary’s stories make the past come alive. The Knight of Spurs and Spirits is also available.
