It's really happened! Roland is to join the royal household at Twofold Castle as a brand new page. This is his big chance to impress the king and his knights. There are a few small problems. The Queen hates mice, and Roland is told his littlest friend, Nudge, won't be allowed to stay. There's an older page who hisses like a snake and always makes sure that poor boys are sent straight home in disgrace. And did we mention that there's an elephant on the rampage? If things don't improve, Roland's dream of being a knight could be over in a day.
