Blog Tour + Giveaway Part Two - The Storybook Knight by Helen and Thomas Docherty

Today I am excited to announce the blog tour for Helen and Thomas Docherty's The Storybook Knight, the second and final part in a two-part blog tour with Sourcebooks! You can find the main page for The Storybook Knight here.

The Storybook Knight
Even dragons can’t resist a good story…

Even though Leo would rather sit at home and read, his parents send him out into the world in the hopes that Leo will become a famous knight. But when Leo comes up against the land’s most fearsome beasts, he soon discovers that scary monsters enjoy a good book as much as anyone…

The Storybook Knight is yet another highly imaginative and entertaining picture book that is sure to bring a smile to readers of all ages.

Leo is the most endearing and heartwarming character that I have come across in ages, and his charming qualities are only enhanced by his pacifist nature and love of books. This book is not only a great story, but also teaches children that books are a great way to find conflict resolution, and that there is also nothing wrong with being a reader! The story is also told in a lovely rhyming pattern that makes it flow well and is thus perfect for reading aloud.

The artwork is simply delightful, as it embodies a traditional form of illustration that brings me back to my own childhood. The characters are all wonderfully depicted and full of life and brought many smiles to my face. I cannot wait until I have my own children so that I can read this story to them, and I am sure to pick this up for a few of the young ones within the rest of my family and friends.

Below is a Rafflecopter giveaway that gives you the opportunity to win an original sketch of Leo and Ned by illustrator Thomas Docherty!
