Title: The Storybook Knight
By: Helen Docherty & Thomas Docherty
Release Date: September 6, 2016
Goodreads Summary: Even though Leo would rather sit at home and read, his parents send him out into the world in the hopes that Leo will become a famous knight. But when Leo comes up against the land’s most fearsome beasts, he soon discovers that scary monsters enjoy a good book as much as anyone…
Review: The Storybook Knight is a very creative and heartwarming story about a brave mouse who faces some creatures on his journey to become a great knight. Book lovers of all ages will appreciate Leo’s love for books and how he shares his love of reading in this story.
I absolutely loved this story! I was smiling at every line – which rhymed!! – and was just awestruck at the beautiful illustrations. This story is set in medieval times, but all of the characters are small creatures, like mice, owls, squirrels, etc. (except for the beasts!).
First of all, I have a soft spot for medival stories, but I think the rhyming stanzas and pictures were what made me fall in love with this story. Helen and Thomas Docherty have crafted an amazing story, and I cannot wait to share it with my nephews and my own children one day!
This story is about bravery, standing up for yourself, and not being afraid to be who you are – all lessons that we should instill in our young ones at any age. And all of these lessons are packaged in a vibrant, feel-good story.
I highly recommend The Storybook Knight!
