You can’t always be the best at everything, but this funny picture book celebrates determination, hope and being the very best YOU can be, no matter what.
The knight who might, may not be very good at riding his horse, or using his sword, or wearing his armour, but he refuses to let that stop him from chasing his dreams. His magical companions are quick to remind him of his shortcomings and the likelihood of failure, but the knight who might won’t give up. Someone has to win the tournament, and it might just be him.
Full of funny speech and plenty of disaster, this story had us giggling throughout. It celebrates never giving up on your dreams and trying your hardest no matter what, which is such a positive message to have in a picture book.
Beckett’s artwork is very funny too. I particularly liked the facial expressions of the horse, sword and helmet.
