What''s a knight''s greatest power? Stories, of course! From the beloved author/illustrator team behind The Snatchabook comes the ultimate storytime book about castles, knights, dragons, and the power of stories!

Even dragons love a good story...

Leo was a gentle knight
in thought and word and deed.
While other knights liked fighting,
Leo liked to sit and read...

When Leo''s mom and dad pack him off to fight a dragon, he takes a shield, a sword-and a pile of his favorite books. But can a story be as mighty as a sword?

This delightful rhyming story about books and the joy of reading is also perfect for kids who love dragon books, adventures, brave knights, and books about castles!
