Knight in Training: 1: Dragons Can’t Swim

Written by: Vivian French

Illustrated by: David Melling

Sam J. Butterbiggins’ only ambition is to be a Very Noble Knight, but he has a problem – he’s been packed off to the castle next door to stay with his aunt and uncle while his parents are away. Not only does he have to put up with his annoying cousin Prune, there’s also the weird creatures his aunt looks after in her Luxury Accommodation for Dragons, Griffins and other Regal Beasts to contend with!

But when Godfrey the dragon gets stuck down a well, Sam and Prune have to work together to come to the rescue. Inside the well they make an incredible discovery – a scroll giving instructions on the six quests to be completed in order to become the perfect knight! Sam’s ambition seems close at hand – if only Prune would stop getting in the way…
