Description - The Bravest Knight by Mercer Mayer
I wish I lived a thousand years ago. There would be beautiful castles, kings and queens, good knights, bad knights, fair ladies in danger, evil dragons from the mountains, and a giant troll that roars and eats anything. What kid hasn't dreamed of living in fairy-tale times--hasn't imagined himself as the bravest knight in all the land (or at least the knight's faithful squire). As he has done in his celebrated There's a Nightmare in My Closet and its follow-ups, Mercer Mayer brings childhood fantasy hilariously to life here. Bad knights are forced to pick flowers for the king, a day's adventure involves rescuing a cat from a tree, and our hero boldly fights a fire-breathing dragon using his trusty slingshot. This silly charmer, originally published in 1968 as Terrible Troll, has been entirely redone in vivid color. It's a rediscovered gem with timeless appeal.
