The Little Knight learns that there is always room for more than one hero!

The little knight lives in a curious kingdom beside a river. He loves cats and chocolate cake, and spends his days peacefully when the kingdom is quiet.

One day, when the little knight goes out for a pleasant swim, he hears someone crying out for help. He rushes to the scene, but he is too late. Another knight has arrived first. But the little knight has always been the brave protector of this kingdom! And then it happens again, and again. Can the little knight prove to the mystery knight that he is the only true knight of this kingdom? Or will he find out the true power of friendship?

This charming installment in the Little Knight series is the perfect opportunity for readers to explore the themes of pride and co-operation. The wonderful scenes depicted by Geneviève Després are full of humorous details to pull readers into the story.
