" What an adorable book! I think children are going to fall in love with it. The illustrations are beautiful, and the story is really cute. Not only do I want a copy for my library, I want one for me!!! " said.

" Ik zag deze in de boekenwinkel, en nu hem op GR heb gezet moest ik wel lachen. Het officiele boek komt niet uit tot September/Oktober dit jaar, maar de Nederlandse vertaling is al uit. Ik snap keuzes van uitgevers echt niet hoor. Echt een leuk boek, zeker voor boekenwurmen zoals ik. Heerlijk om te zien hoe problemen worden opgelost. Mooie illustraties ook. :D " said.

" Just got an advance copy and I love it. It is an excellent rhyming book, reads like a good poem, which is my favorite kind of picture book. A mouse is expected to be a knight, but doesn't like to fight. His mom and dad send him on a quest and he succeeds by reading everyone books. Great for that special book nerd in your life. " said.

" My new favorite picture book! Starring a peaceful mouse named Leo who would rather read than fight, this charming book has so many delightful features. The rhymes are jaunty, the illustrations are detailed and colorful, and the joy of reading is suffused throughout. I especially like the peaceful resolution to all Leo's encounters with fearsome creatures. Highly recommended as a story-time read-aloud. " said.

" I love The Story Book Knight! As cool as it would have been to see Leo the mouse fight off a griffin and a dragon, it's way cooler that he made friends with them instead. Who doesn't want a dragon as a friend?The messages here are good ones, too. The obvious one is that reading is a good thing, and enjoyable for everyone. The second is that violence isn't necessarily the way to get what you want. All good things!The illustrations and story were both great. A fine addition to any child's library. " said.

"This is one of the most adorable picture books I have yet read! (And that is the reason why I review it on here, what I usually do not do for picture books....)

The story is very cute, funny and transports the moral of the story without seeming to focus on it.
The pictures are adorable and the rhymes make it very easy to access for children.
Just look at that gorgeous cover! It also doesn't just show that you don't need to use violence,, but can use your brain - it also shows a love for books, which can never be installed into children to soon. :)

I'd say 3-6 years is what it is best suited for.

100% recommended by me!

"In this story, Leo is a young mouse who is raised to be a fighting knight. But Leo would rather read instead of fighting. When his parents see an opportunity for Leo to tame a dragon, which all good knights are suppose to do, he sets of on his trusty stead armed with a stack of his favorite books. Will Leo be forced to fight or will he be able to share in the joy of reading instead?

This was a cute picture book that would be a great addition to any elementary school librarian. The text is written in a nice lyrical and rhyming matter which kids enjoy. The illustrations are bright and I especially like the addition of the dragon poop at the end. I can see many young kids giggling when they come across those pages. This is a winning title that shows the magic of reading over fighting to win the day.

*I received this book as a preview from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

"Leo’s quest (the ones his parents send him on) is an adventure of all the things I love in stories. From the beginning when we see him buried nose-deep in books to the end when he ‘slays’ the terrifying dragon by being exactly who he is.

I loved –

* the story
* the message
* the wonderful artwork (seriously if it wasn’t for being an absolute sacrilege I could love to take the dragon illustrations and stick them up but there is no way I can destroy books, especially not lovely ones!)
* all the little details within the illustrations (yes that gets a separate mention)
* the characters, not just Leo (he’s adorable) but all the ones he meets on his quest
* the cleaning (this makes sense when you read the book)
* & how the story ends

The Knight Who Wouldn’t Fight just wonderful through and through. So if you have a younger audience to read to they will love it. If you don’t, well who cares – I’m pretty sure you’ll like it too.
