9780803732063: The Bravest Knight

I wish I lived a thousand years ago. There would be beautiful castles, kings and queens, good knights, bad knights, fair ladies in danger, evil dragons from the mountains, and a giant troll that roars and eats anything.

What kid hasn’t dreamed of living in fairy-tale times—hasn’t imagined himself as the bravest knight in all the land (or at least the knight’s faithful squire). As he has done in his celebrated There’s a Nightmare in My Closet and its follow-ups, Mercer Mayer brings childhood fantasy hilariously to life here. Bad knights are forced to pick flowers for the king, a day’s adventure involves rescuing a cat from a tree, and our hero boldly fights a fire-breathing dragon using his trusty slingshot.

This silly charmer, originally published in 1968 as Terrible Troll, has been entirely redone in vivid color. It’s a rediscovered gem with timeless appeal.

About the Author:

Mercer Mayer lives in New England.

From Booklist:

A young boy fantasizes about living "a thousand years ago" in a world with beautiful castles, kings and queens, not-so-evil dragons, and a giant troll. Fully immersed in his daydream, the boy serves as squire to the bravest knight, and all goes well until they are asked to save the kingdom from the terrible, giant troll. When the troll appears to have overcome the knight, the boy abruptly retreats from the fantasy, concluding, "I'm glad I didn't live a thousand years ago." Originally published in 1968 as Terrible Troll, this new edition alters the title and jacket artwork to shift the focus from the troll to the boy. The text remains unchanged, but the artwork's double-page scenes have been enlarged to fit a more expansive format and updated with much brighter colors. This attractive reissue, perfect for sharing with groups, will entice new readers into Mayer's fanciful medieval world. Randall Enos
