A brave little knight realizes that the best way to tame a beast is to find the source of its pain.

In a curious kingdom built on top of a forest lives a little knight. His life is carefree. During the day, he has fun training flies. At night, he relaxes in a hammock, befriending the bats.

But one day the village falls under the shadow of a dragon and our hero must set off to fight the fearsome beast. When he finds the dragon, however, the little knight sees that what’s needed to save the day is a dose of kindness.

This third installment in the Little Knight series is a charming and witty tale with timely themes of friendship and compassion. The wonderful scenes depicted by Geneviève Després are full of humorous details to pull readers into the story.
