Knights are supposed to be big, brave dragon fighters, but Small Knight doesnat feel big or brave. In fact, he shivers in his boots as he rides out on his horse in search of a fierce dragon. He goes from place to place, asking the local people if theyave seen a dragon that he can fight, but he is always a little too late. A fierce dragon has already come and then gone from each place he visits. The people tell him frightening dragon stories, which makes Small Knight realize that he really doesnat want to fight a dragon at all. On his way home at the end of the day, Small Knight meets a strange but friendly little creature hiding in the shrubbery. What Small Knight fails to realize is that this friendly meeting will cause general panic the moment he returns home to his castle. Very funny color illustrations on every page.
