I really liked the part where a knight's spear hits a wall with such a clang that all his armour falls off, piece by piece. - INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY - Leo Taylor (age 6)A lovely, funny book, full of very bad jokes, which are often the best sort, and the atmosphere of a Carry-On film, this book will delight many. - CAROUSEL - Dennis Hamley
