"Leo was a gentle knight in thought and word and deed.While other knights liked fighting, Leo liked to sit and read."
Leo is a young mouse from a family of knights - his parents expect him to grow up to fight dragons but Leo has other ideas. He wants nothing more than to sit home and read book. When a ferocious dragon is starts causing destruction to the town, Leo is sent off to save the day. He meets a handful of creatures before finally facing the dragon. He brings a sword and a shield, but his most helpful weapon is an arm-full of books!
This is very cute story about a mouse who is a little different than everyone else. Instead of knighthood, he wants to read books - and his reading ends up being what saves the town from the dragon. 'The Storybook Knight' has everything that makes a great picture books - bright illustrations, fun text, and a wonderful story.
