This week I am celebrating

Written and Illustrated by The Brothers McLeod, Publishing August 1, 2020 by Guppy Books

Favourite Sentence on Page 11…”He was brave and noble, but one day he failed to stop the double-headed dragon Borax from eating King Burt’s brother, Prince Garibaldi (famous for smelling faintly of biscuits)”

Three Words to Describe this Book… Hilarious, Daft, Brilliant

My Recommendation… This book is hilarious and slightly daft, and full of surprises. Basically, Knight Sir Louis is “a hero in a bonkers world”. He lives in Castle Sideways (take that literally) and he is off to save the world from a giant damsel who is scoffing all the chocolate coins. He is accompanied by his trusty steed, a robot horse named Clunkalot and a magical boar named Mr Catalogue.

What could go wrong? A more apt question might be what can go right? Knight Sir Louis is ready for the challenge and I can guarantee this is one epic you won’t want to miss!

Between the humour and the illustrations, this will have you giggling with tears streaming down your face! A sheer delight from beginning to end. I hope there may be more daring adventures yet to come from brave Knight Sir Louis and The Brothers McLeod!
