Damsel Disaster! by Peter Bently


Damsel Disaster! by Peter Bently

Cedric Thatchbottom can't wait to train as a squire, serving Sir Percival the Proud - a knight famed throughout the land for his glorious deeds. But this famous knight isn't all he appears to be, and Cedric soon finds himself being run ragged around Castle Bombast by his new master. In Book 3 of the Knightmare series, a wealthy princess is visiting the kingdom in search of a husband, and Sir Percy has a plot up his sleeve to see off the other potential suitors. As usual, Cedric has a key part to play in his master's plan. Ugh! Dressing up as a maiden in silk bloomers wasn't quite what he had in mind when he signed up to be a squire. A hilarious new series following the misadventures of a trainee knight. Packed with comical characters, battles, puns and poo, these books are irresistible to young readers aged six to eight years.


This series is brilliant and seems to get funnier with each book. We loved it and cannot wait for the next instalment. 5/5 stars. Book Babblers
