We teach our children about road safety, not to play with matches, not to talk to strangers etc and yet we don’t as a rule teach our children about the dangers of abuse. It is a topic that is hard to tackle but we must grasp this nettle as statistics show that 1 in 4 females and 1 in 6 males are sexually abused…and those figures are possibly higher in reality. & This book in my opinion is a great way to tackle the subject with children... a tale of castles, knights... great illustrations ... & a great story with body safety threaded into it. Empower your children with age appropriate awareness.

This is a beautifully written and illustrated book; dealing with the subject of child abuse in the most sensitive and accessible way. The images and are powerful without being graphic and the story of this little brave knight, succinctly deals with what a child may face, within the structure of a traditional tale.

A book that discloses to children that no adult should blackmail them in to keeping a secret, should be in every school library and on every child's bookshelf.

Highly recommended for any parent or child.

Having the privelege and joy of raising two daughters i would love for the world to treat them as we do - as precious, amazing, fun, beautiful children. I hope and pray they never encounter abuse. However it is important not to sugar coat or ignore the reality of life outside our home. This book will be an excellent tool in helping prepare them for life, the universe and everything - sensitively written with a strong message. I got my copy from the book depository UK, and im glad to see Amazon selling it too.

Very good book, allowing parents to discuss a very sensitive subject with their children in a safe way. I like the fact that the book has discussion points at the back, and questions to ask the children, such as "Why did little Alfred feel he couldn't tell his Mum?". I read it to my boys (7 and 5), separately, then a few weeks later, together, and they both understand about secrets that make you uncomfortable should never be kept. A friend was in the house recently, as I was reading this book to the boys, and afterwards she told me that it was a wonderful thing to discuss with them at such a young age. At their age, she was abused in a similar way to Alfred in this book, and she didn't have the language to talk about it with her parents, so kept quiet. That, alone, makes me very happy with this book, and I'd recommend it to other parents who want to broach the subject with their children.

I bought this for my four year old. It is very direct and I think the concepts are too complicated for him yet. It is well written but I'm not sure I'd use it until he is older and then maybe only if i was worried, I am not sure, but certainly not yet.

This book is well written and provides pertinent points of sexual abuse in a sensitive way. It is a very difficult subject to explain to a child but this book illustrates this beautifully and provides parents with a tool to expand and discuss the topic without scaring a child. I am very impressed and would recommend the book to other parents without reservation.
I think it would be suitable for most children up to the age of 12 years.

I have a 4 1/2 year old daughter. She enjoys this book and regularly asks for it and wants me to read through the prompt questions at the end each time. I am amazed at how much she understands and empathises with the little boy. It's all about giving her the confidence to say no and tell if something doesn't feel right. I so hope she never needs to.

Well written story...make sure you read yourself before reading with your child. Is more direct / draws more questions from child than others I've read with them. Does the job of bringing up personal safety in a child friendly way though!

good resource for young people who have not yet disclosed abuse but have something to tell. I'm not sure about his mother thinking she will make a living by knitting jumpers for rich people (I've tried it without success) but never mind!
