Elephant Joe is a Knight!

Oh no! The Dark Knight has stolen the King’s crown. Who can rescue it? Elephant Joe, of course – with the help of his trusty sidekick, Zebra Pete. Quick! They need armour and horses! Off they gallop, through the Enchanted Forest to the Dark Knight’s tower. But there’s an unexpected twist in this tale. Is the damsel in distress what she seems to be? Or is she… the Dark Knight? Beware! This story contains dragons, dastardly deeds, a damsel in distress and kissing frogs. There’ll be lots of jousting and heroics before it’s time for tea…

A gallant picture book quest full of imagination, starring a stout-hearted knight in shining armour: Elephant Joe! From the brilliant David Wojtowycz, bestselling illustrator of Rumble in the Jungle, this is irresistible fun for any chivalrous young adventurer!
