The Knight of Silk and Steel, Paperback Book

The Knight of Silk and Steel Paperback

Illustrated by Helen Flook

Part of the Knights' Tales series


The locals all fall off their tavern stools with surprise when a strange figure arrives to the village.

He says he is a knight, and he does have a magnificent horse and a gleaming silver sword.

But he is wearing...a dress! Sir Ulrich has not dedicated his life to fighting for one woman - he is fighting for Venus, the goddess of love, and he will fight any knight in the land for her honour.

Unfortunately, fighting in a silk dress is not so easy.

An unusual tale, based on a real medieval knight, this story is full of Terry Deary's dark humour and dry wit.
