The Lovereading4Kids comment
A delicious romp of a story from former Children’s Laureate Quentin Blake, Snuff tells how an incompetent page boy finds that he can be useful after all. Sir Thomas Magpie is an easy going kind of knight but even he despairs of Snuff, his dreamy page boy. Snuff can’t sword fight, can’t bow and can’t even dance without landing himself right in the sandwiches! How will he ever become a knight? But Snuff has hidden talents as he shows when his cunning plan saves the Boot maker from the four horrible boot thieves. Quentin Blake is probably best known as the illustrator for all Roald Dahl’s books including The BFG and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but Quentin is an author as well as an illustrator and his picture books, of which this is one are truly stunning and will bring much laughter and smiles to both parent and child in the nursery at bedtime. Click here to see a selection of these fabulous books all of which will be enjoyed equally by toddlers and by adults!

'Snuff, at this rate it will be a very long time before we make a knight out of you.' Snuff can't wait to be a knight and have lots of adventures, but Sir Thomas Magpie despairs of him - Snuff just doesn't always get things right. But when the bootmaker is raided by thieves, Snuff might just have an idea of how to save the day...
