Publisher Summary

A miniature Medieval castle seems like the perfect gift–and it leads William on the adventure of a lifetime. Presenting the 35th anniversary edition of this beloved adventure. William thinks the miniature castle, complete with a drawbridge, portcullis, and a silver knight, is the perfect gift. But when a problem arises, William finds himself entering the castle and getting caught up on a daring quest, having to face a dragon, and needing to face a few personal challenges, too, before he can save the kingdom.
