Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Lovely, rhyming children’s picture book – Sir Lambalot by Jude Lennon and Holly Bushnell

“Queen Floss lives in a castle grand,

The finest one across the land.

Sir Lambalot is her busiest knight,

With quests to do both day and night.”

Queen Floss is determined to rid the land of dragons, giants and trolls, so she turns to Sir Lambalot and his trusty steed Ned to help. But when the brave knight meets these fearful creatures, he discovers they aren’t quite so scary after all. Written in rhyme and full of fun, this story has an important message about kindness, tolerance and acceptance.

My Review:

Sir Lambalot is a knight both bold and kind,

Fulfilling quests the Queen Floss does find.

He’s always ready to fight for the Queen

Even fearsome creatures, the worst you’ve seen.

However, he’s also willing to talk to them, too,

To discover who they are and what they do

He learns that many aren’t scary at all

They just want some friends to come to call.

It is a story that shows that how someone looks isn’t a clue

To who they are or what they’ll do.

It has lovely illustrations throughout the book

And is definitely worth you taking a good look!

Thank you for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
