Synopsis

The Sunflower Sword by Mark Sperring

The little knight wants a sword to whoosh and swoosh in the air. His mother gives him a sunflower instead. The sunflower sword whooshes and swooshes very well. 'But,' says the little knight, 'it won't be any good for fighting dragons.' Or will it?

Reviews

Latimer's illustrations are absolutely beautiful in this enchanting tale. The Bookseller Brimming with charm in bold, striking colour - marvellously sweet. -- Philip Womack The Sunday Telegraph I loved Miriam Latimer's illustrations - the little knight is a great character, and the style suits both the quirky start and gentle finish. -- Keith Dudhnath TheBookBag.co.uk This is a lively book to read with young children, colourful and spirited. -- Morag Charlwood Armadillo Magazine Well received in hardback, simple beautifully drawn tale of friendship triumphing over fighting and one of my favourite picture books of the year. Dragons and knights make it a great boys

-- Fiona Noble The Bookseller
