Despite his small size, the Little Knight was quite brave. He wasn't afraid of the dark, of enemies, or even of mice. The only thing that frightened him was the rain, and this was because he was worried that the rain would rust his shiny suit of armor.
The kingdom in which the Little Knight lived was quite unusual. It was built on the top of a large forest, and that was where the people lived.
One day, there was a tremendous thunderstorm which continued for days and days. Everyone stayed safely inside their homes, high up in the tall trees.
The Little Knight, who was terrified, hid away in a closet deep in the fortress cellar, comforting himself with chocolate cake.
After a long time, he emerged from the cellar. The thunder had ended but it was still raining. Looking out over the kingdom, he noticed that all the ladders which allowed people to climb down from the trees and move around the kingdom had been washed away. Not one remained. Without a way to get around, everyone was stranded! And now, after such a long storm, everyone was out of food and getting very hungry.
Calls of "Help" Save me" I'm hungry" were beginning to ring out from rooftops and balconies everywhere.
The Little Knight knew he had to do something to help - but what? It was a very big problem for such a little knight, and he was still afraid.
Then, as he thought and thought about it, the Little Knight had an idea - a very clever idea!
Would it work? The Little Knight had no idea, but he had to try it.
Gilles Tibo's inspiring story about confronting one's fears and being brave - whether you are big or little - ends happily, and the amusing details in the illustrations and captions on each page will invite children to find such items as the cat, the mice and, of course, the chocolate cake!
** Recommended for ages 3 to 8 years.
