Dave is terrible at all the things dragons are supposed to be good at: hoarding gold, eating villages, telling riddles…and don’t even ask about his knitting skills. So when he becomes the first dragon ever to fail the Dragon Test, he finds a book called Knighthood for Beginners and decides he’s found his destiny! Before long, Dave is decked out in a new suit of armor and is off on a series of adventures with his trusty steed—a German-speaking, life coach, explorer, and goat named Albrecht. The ultimate goal? Dave the dragon being knighted by the King of Castletown.

From start to satisfying finish, this page-turner by Elys Dolan is a fresh and extremely funny new voice in chapter books. Black-and-white illustrations by the author help bring all the hilarity to life, and there’s even a glossary of Albrecht’s German expressions.

What reviewers are saying about Knighthood for Beginners:
“A highly illustrated hoot, full of outrageous medieval mash ups.” – The Guardian
“The inventive, zany text and captioned pictures are laugh-out-loud funny.” – The Sunday Times
