A laugh-out-loud new series about a young boy's burning ambition to become a knight - as long as he can take along his mouse too.
Roland wants to be a knight in armour - but Roland's dad is a blacksmith, and only boys from noble families can even dream of becoming knights.
When mysterious visitors arrive in the village one day, everything changes. Roland finds himself in the contest of a lifetime, with a real chance to become a pageboy - the first step on the road to knighthood. But how can skinny, clumsy Roland beat an opponent who is bigger, stronger and older - and who doesn't fight by the rules?
Join Roland and his pet mouse, Nudge, in the first book of their laugh-out-loud knightly adventures!
