Squire & Knight (Hardcover)
May/June 2023 Kids Indie Next List
“I loved this middle grade graphic novel about a young squire and a dragon that is destroying the town. Can’t wait for it to come out and to hand it to all the kids I know.”
— Elizabeth Schieber, Rainy Day Books, Fairway, KS
A young squire tackles mysteries, monsters and magic, but the inept knight he serves takes the credit. Every time.
Squire is brainy, bookish, and terribly under-appreciated by the brawny, inept knight Sir Kelton, who somehow always gets all the glory. So when the two mismatched heroes find themselves in a cursed village plagued by a demonic dragon, Kelton rides off to slay it and Squire stays behind to catch up on some reading. But Squire starts to notice that something isn’t quite right about this town . . . Can he uncover its strange secrets?
