Gr 3-5–When Squire and Knight stumble upon a cursed village terrified of a local dragon, the heroes jump to save the day. While Sir Kelton rides off right away to fight the dragon, Squire is told to stay back and read his books instead. As the days go by and Sir Kelton still hasn’t returned, the young Squire begins to unravel town secrets and realizes how he might be the real hero the town needs. Readers will appreciate how Squire solves problems using his mind while the inept Knight fails using just his brawn, highlighting the importance of thinking before you act. The artwork sets the medieval scene beautifully with quirky, detailed characters and earthy coloring that reflects the simplicity of the classic village.
VERDICT A witty, adventurous tale with excellent character building, this graphic novel gives readers of fantasy and medieval stories plenty to enjoy.
