Synopsis

Small Knight and George by Ronda Armitage

Small knight doesn't want to fight a dragon, he wants to stay at home and play kick-a-ball with his friends. He doesn't even know what a dragon looks like. But it's what big brave knights do, so he sets out on his quest. As he travels the land on his trusty steed, George, he sees the havoc a dragon can wreak! But what happens when he finally comes face to face with one? A fabulously funny, read-aloud adventure from Ronda Armitage - author of bestselling family favourite The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch. With detailed, cartoon-style illustrations from Arthur Robins.
