In just one week, the king will choose a new knight—and Sir Simpleton intends to make sure that young Sam has mastered all the skills he needs to know, from riding a horse to rescuing a princess. Unfortunately, Sir Simpleton may not be the best trainer: he dons a chicken suit instead of armor, fights a bored cow instead of a dragon, and seeks wisdom from a bearded goat. Will Sam succeed in spite of his "teacher"? In this delightful send-up of medieval clichés for readers 4 to 8, Jenn Harney fills her digital illustrations with big, absurd actions and small, droll details.
