Its readers can follow the brave knight on his quest to bed through forests and past crocodiles and up a castle wall. What I particularly enjoyed was the blurred lines between reality and fantasy. It created the perfect story world for all to enjoy.
The book helps make bedtime more fun and enjoyable, whilst still keeping it about the task at hand. The full and busy pages keep children easily engaged, with plenty to look at, whilst teaching them that yes, even brave knight's have to brush their teeth.
Knight Night was an absolute pleasure to read.
It's pretty much the perfect book for any little kid who loves knights and castles. (And are there any little kids who don't? I'm sure there must be, but I haven't met them yet.) My little boy adores it. My one reservation, the first time we read it together, was that I worried the pictures - while stunning by any standards - used such a limited color palette, I wasn't sure he was getting the full effect of them as clearly as if they'd used more distinct colors to make each detail stand out. I think I was wrong about that, though - he points out hidden details every time we read it now, and asks for it to be read again and again!
I got a free copy of this book (as I share a publisher with the author), but I'll definitely be buying extra copies for friends' children.
