Hector and the Big Bad Knight

Knights, dragons and awesomely funny twists! The super-talented creator of Claude is one of the top stars in picture books. (So good we signed him up to write for us, in fact.) Read this book and be charmed. It’s all about a very naughty knight who meets his match in Hector, the tiniest boy in the village. Even the knight’s scary dragon can’t frighten Hector off. What will happen next? Well: there will be very cute pictures, bags of crisps and lessons in knightly manners…
