The Knight of Swords and Spooks, Paperback / softback Book

The Knight of Swords and Spooks Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Helen Flook

Part of the Knights' Tales series


Young George is suspicious when his unloving father announces that he will be a squire to King Richard III.

It is not long before he finds out that he is really a hostage to guarantee his father's loyalty to the king.

After one failed escape attempt, George believes his tragic fate to be sealed.

He isn't counting on the heroics of his faithful servant, Robin, who shows he will do anything to protect his young master.

The king's allies are not so loyal and the future of England is about to change forever.

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