Reviews

'As usual, David Melling's illustrations keep readers smiling all the way through, adding colour to a fast-paced narrative which keeps young minds concentrating on this terrific tale until the last page.' * South Wales Argus * ... one reading won't exhaust this book's pleasures * TES * David Melling's comic tale is a delight in every way. His witty illustrations and gently sardonic text combine with typographical showmanship resulting in a richly enjoyable story which has all the hallmarks of the classic children's picture book. * Scottish Sunday Herald * Off trots the brave knight (he is the real star) following a humorous narrative that simply races along. This is a wonderful read that is bound to win first place in the bed-time reading stakes. * The Lady * With lively drawings...this humorous story will entertain both boy and girl readers. * Carousel * Aside from the perfect pace and humour of this book, it is the illustrations which set it apart from the average children's bedtime picture story book. Melling, author and illustrator, deserves even more awards to be heaped on him for his latest offering. * www.adoption-net.co.uk * A delight ...
