The Knight Who Wouldn't Fight
Thomas Docherty, Helen Docherty

Ages: 3-7

A joyful, magical picture book about the power of stories, featuring Leo, a noble knight.

Leo the mouse isn't like the other knights. He'd rather read a book than take part in daring deeds.  When his parents send him off on a mission to tame a dragon, Leo knows that books are mightier than the sword, and he tames not just the dragon, but a troll and a griffin, by reading them his stories. Fantastic rhyming text and wonderfully detailed illustrations will make this a brand new favourite from husband and wife team, Thomas and Helen Docherty.
