Helen and Thomas Docherty’s “The Storybook Knight” is an adorable tale about a knight named Leo who just happens to be a mouse.
When Leo goes on a quest — with his trusty steed Ned — he disarms the creatures he meets with the power of stories.
This illustrated book is 100 percent innocent fun and is written in verse, giving it a great reading rhythm.
It features highly detailed illustrations that are beautifully rendered and there is a great theme running throughout the book.
It was published by Sourcebooks Jabberwocky on Sept. 8.
