Synopsis

Sir Laughalot by Tony Mitton

Sir Laughalot is a very brave knight. He needs to find some foes to fight. He has his shield. He has his sword. But Laughalot is feeling bored. What can he do? Where can he go? Let's find Sir Laughalot a foe...Sir Laughalot is a knight who isn't afraid of a challenge. He's quite prepared to go out into the world to face any fearsome opponent. However, Sir Laughalot has a very different, yet effective way of dealing with his foes, and one that isn't strictly in keeping with his 'tough knight in armour' look...A hugely exciting, hilarious tale of a brave knight, an enormous dragon and a damsel in distress makes this an absolute gem of a picture book. The thread of fun running throughout Sir Laughalot is incredibly infectious - reading this story will make you feel instantly more cheery.

Reviews

Plenty of giggly fun, with a happy fairytale ending. Junior

About the Author

Tony Mitton

Tony Mitton was born in 1951 in North Africa, the son of a soldier. Until he was 9 he lived mostly in Africa, Germany and Hong Kong. He went to state boarding school in Suffolk and went on to do an English Literature degree at Cambridge University. He then trained to be an English teacher before making the switch to primary school teaching.

Tony worked as a primary school teacher between the ages of 25 to 49, but for the last 13 years of that period he taught part-time. During that period he began to spend 2 or 3 days a week working at his writing, and wrote poems and stories for school reading books and also for trade market books. He now writes full-time and visits lots of schools, libraries and events to talk about his work.

He lives in a small house in the middle of Cambridge with his wife and two children, and a cat called Tiggy, who is definitely one of the family. Tony likes Cambridge but he and his wife often wish they'd settled somewhere where there are better places for walking, like cliffs and hills with good views of the landscape.
