What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Prepare the shining armor: the king needs a knight! Sir Simpleton has a week to train young Sam for the job—but he gets everything wrong, fighting a bored cow instead of a fiery dragon and seeking wisdom from a bearded goat . . . instead of a wizard. Will Sam succeed in spite of his “teacher”? Kids will love the wildly funny illustrations and watching a wily child outsmart a delightfully silly adult.
