Sir Lambalot by Jude Lennon Illustrated by Holly Bushell


Sir Lambalot is a new picture book for children aged 3-6. 

"Queen Floss lives in a castle grand,

The finest one across the land.

Sir Lambalot is her busiest knight,

With quests to do both day and night."

Queen Floss is determined to rid the land of dragons, giants and trolls, so she turns to Sir Lambalot and his trusty steed Ned to help. But when the brave knight meets these fearful creatures, he discovers they aren't quite so scary after all. Written in rhyme and full of fun, this story has an important message about kindness, tolerance and acceptance.

 This is a delightful book to share with young readers and one which my grandchildren sought out for a repeat reading- always a good sign! The format in rhyme adds to the appeal and makes it easy to share aloud. The repetitive nature of the story enables youngsters to anticipate what might be coming next and the illustrations are bright and add to the experience. I also liked the underlying message of kindness and acceptance.

Cat and Mouse say... be kind!
