Jon Agee is brilliant in his use of the page turn, visual storytelling, and deadpan humour.
His books have won starred reviews and medals galore in his native country, America. The knight talks directly to the reader, and the book's gutter becomes a literal wall in this playful, meta story that is laugh-out-loud funny. A persuasive allegory about the folly of prejudice and xenophobia. Plenty of funny details and secondary visual storylines to notice as you read the book a second, third, and tenth time.
Kids will love pointing them out to the grownups.
