The Storybook Knight

by Helen Docherty & Thomas Docherty


Even dragons can’t resist a good story…

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 was an absolutely adorable children's book. I loved how it rhymed, and I loved the story. The rhymes would make this book an excellent candidate for using to teach your kids to read! I think it was great how the Docherty's made the monsters so likable and human, i.e. the troll, the dragon and the Griffin. 
The illustrations are beautiful, and the cheerful story will lull your child to sleep, but this would also be a good book to read anytime in the day.

Children: I believe this book will be loved by both little girls and boys. The book recommends ages 4 and up, but you could start to read this to your child as soon as you wanted, the more reading the better! You could even get your older children to read it to your younger children. The Storybook Knight is a great story about family.
Parents: I think parents will also love this story, as it is sweet and likable. If the parents have to read this story over and over, I don't think they will get tired of reading it to their children. 
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars! 
Thank you to Helen Docherty, Thomas Docherty, Sourcebooks and JabberwockyKids for a copy of this book for my honest review and for this blog tour!
Thank you to Sourcebooks also for this adorable The Storybook Knight mobile. Sorry, the photo isn't that great!
