Knight needed. Apply at castle. In just one week, the king intends to choose a new knight—and Sir Simpleton intends to make sure that young Sam has mastered all the skills he needs to know, from riding a big horse to rescuing a princess. Unfortunately, Sir Simpleton may not be the very best trainer: he dons a chicken suit instead of armor, fights a bored cow instead of a fiery dragon, and seeks wisdom from a bearded goat . . . instead of a wizard. Will Sam succeed in spite of his “teacher”? Kids will laugh out loud at the wildly funny illustrations—and enjoy watching a smart child outwit a delightfully silly adult.
