Description
Not only mean but very, very lazy, Nestor the Nasty Knight keeps a staff of servants busy catering to his every need. Young Nick is fed up with being at the knight's beck and call, so he nabs a magic coin and makes a bold escape from the castle. When he is captured by a band of robbers, Nick offers to lead them to the Nasty Knight's treasure, even as he hatches a plan to thwart all of the villains. In her mixed-media illustrations, the author-illustrator of No Ordinary Family affectionately satirizes swashbuckling fairy tales, and includes lots of humorous details for readers 4 to 8 to spot.

"On one level, the story is simple fun, as are the illustrations, but scratch it just a little and it has much to say about the universality of greed and how wealth finds meaning when it is put to use for the common good."óKirkus Reviews (UK)
