The Knights and the Best Quest Synopsis

What's the point of a daring quest without a little competition? The Knights of the Drop- Leaf Table don't think there is one, so it's time to draw up the rules, find a suitable prize, hit the road on their less-than-trusty steeds and prove who's best! Can they return laden with magic amulets, damsels in distress and dragon's heads? Or is the draw of one of Mrs Spunge's delectable sandwiches far too tempting...

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant or dyslexic readers aged 8+
