Roland Wright, Future Knight


Formats & editions


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!

About the Authors

Tony Davis

Tony Davis, a senior writer and editor with the Sydney Morning Herald, has written about cars for nearly twenty years. He has driven some of the fastest, most expensive, and most impressive vehicles ever built, yet retains a bizarre fascination with cars at the other end of the spectrum, those built by engineers who, as he puts it, 'think a tour de force is a bicycle race'.


Praise for Roland Wright, Future Knight
