This April we’re delighted to be publishing a brand new picture book from a wonderful new author-illustrator partnership: The Knight Who Said ‘No!’, a brilliantly observed rhyming picture book, written by Lucy Rowland, with charming illustrations from Kate Greenaway-nominated illustrator Kate Hindley.
Early finished copies of the book have recently arrived in the Crow’s Nest, and look absolutely FANTASTIC – and today you can take a first look inside the book!
Ned the Knight ALWAYS does exactly what he’s told. When his parents ask him to pick up his toys, dig up the cabbages or go to bed on time, he does it all with a smile. And when the dragon swoops into town every night, he always runs inside, just as he’s asked. But one morning, instead of saying ‘yes’, Ned says ‘NO!’ And, refusing to go inside that night, he confronts the dragon… making a very unlikely friend in the process.
Here’s a look inside the book:
The Knight Who Said ‘No!’ will be in shops from April – you can find out more about the book here.
