Good Night, Good Knight

Good Night, Good Knight Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Three little dragons in a far-off cave can't sleep. Someone needs to tuck them in! Luckily a Good Knight keeps watch and hears their lonely ROAR. The Good Knight (because he is a good knight) helps by bringing glasses of water, reading stories, singing songs, and dispensing kisses in multiple trips down his tower and through the dark forest.

Young readers will fall in love with the agreeable Good Knight and the dragons with their sweet but repetitive requests. The repetition — though it tires the Good Knight — will help beginning readers build confidence. With pictures by Jennifer Plecas, whose unforgettably adorable dragons will win every heart, Good Night, Good Knight is sure to become a new bedtime classic.

Review:

"Copious artwork, controlled vocabulary, effective repetition, brief sentences and a chapter-book trim size make this a comfortable fit for children just beginning to read solo. A fine way to bid good night" Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Whether used as a beginning reader or as a read-aloud at bedtime, this sweet story will charm readers and listeners alike....Plecas's illustrations are a wonderful complement to this endearing tale." School Library Journal

Review:

"The story's appeal lies in its sheer silliness, played out through repetition and plays on words. But it is Plecas' charming, hilarious illustrations...that make the book so irresistible." Booklist

Review:

"[A]n ideal easy reader. Thomas is a consummate storyteller: the language and the rhythm of the text, along with her great sense of humor, carries readers merrily along to the conclusion." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

A Good Knight helps three little dragons who are having trouble getting to sleep. Full-color illustrations.

Synopsis:

Three little wide-awake dragons can't go to sleep without some familiar and time-tried bedtime rituals — even though it means a Good Knight is the one who has to bring glasses of water, read stories, and tuck them in.
