The Knight Who Wouldn't Fight

by Helen and Thomas Docherty - £6.99  Scholastic US (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781407163482 | ISBN 10: 1407163485

Leo the mouse isn't like the other knights. While they like fighting, he'd rather read a book. Leo's parents are keen to turn him into a proper knight, so they pack him off on a mission to tame a dragon. But Leo knows that books are mightier than swords, and he tames not just the dragon, but a troll and a griffin, too - by reading them stories.
 
With its witty rhyming text and glorious, detailed illustrations, The Knight Who Wouldn't Fight is a joyful, magical picture book about the power of stories.
