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.
