Don Quixote, Paperback Book

Description

Walker Illustrated Classics is a new series which brings together some of the best-loved stories ever told, illustrated by some of today's finest artists.

These exquisitely designed books, with their magnificent words and glorious pictures, are a pleasure to read - and re-read.

The classics have never looked so good! The famous tale of Don Quixote, an elderly Spanish gentleman, who reads one too many chivalric romances, and decides to become a knight errant, accompanied by his faithful "squire" Sancho Panza.

He sets off on his travels through sixteenth-century spain to right wrongs and rescue damsels in distress but his adventures - such as the famous incident in which he mistakes windmills for giants and attacks them - are both comic and romantic.

In the end he returns to his village, a dying man who still believes in heroes and is a hero himself.
