My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Can a story save the kingdom?
When Leo's mom and dad send him off to fight a dragon, he takes a shield, a sword--and a pile of his favorite books.
But can a story be as mighty as a sword?
This is a super sweet rhyming book about a knight who would rather read a good story then battle a dragon. His parents have other ideas. So he packs his sword, shield, and, of course, books and heads off on adventure. In the end, stories save the day as he meets an interesting cast of characters along his journey.
This is just a darling book. We love nearly all things dragons in this family and this sweet knight wouldn't hurt a scale. The illustrations are colorful, featuring many adorable animals in the fairytale land. Even the scary creatures our brave knight meets are pretty darn cute! Parents will love the message that books, brains and kindness can save the day. Kids will love the rhyming and the fantastical illustrations.
Miss R's Review
It's about dragons. The knight helps save all these crazy monsters who try to attack things. He is nice and reads them books and let's them keep the books. The dragon even helps clean up his mess. Some dragons aren't very polite, but he learned the polite thing to do from the knight. It's good for kids who like adventure, reading and dragons. It helps people see reading as a good thing. I hope you like this book if you read it for yourself.
