The loveable duo from The Kiss That Missed are back in a third adventure!

The hapless knight and his faithful horse are left to babysit the prince and princess. But babysitting is a lot harder than they think. Add to the mix - a bag of spells, a little magic and three wishes - and it's going to be a long night.

From the bestselling creator of Hugless Douglas, this delightful story is full of humour, charm and magic.
