Knight Owl

by Christopher, Denise is the story of a little owl who wanted to be a knight and a dragon who loved pizza. Owl’s dream of becoming a knight seems improbable at first; he’s not human and much smaller than most knights. But, when an alarming number of the kingdom’s knights go missing, he is accepted to Knight School, where he makes it to graduation, despite being, as a nocturnal creature, sleepier than the rest of the Knight School students. But, his “habit of nodding off during the day” makes him perfect for the Knight Night Watch, where he patrols the castle, on the lookout for dragons. When one such fearsome dragon appears, Owl uses the power of quick thinking and snacks to save the day! Denise’s illustrations are warm and cozy and readers will delight in Owl’s cute facial expressions.
