Sir Lambalot Blurb
“Queen Floss lives in a castle grand,
The finest one across the land.
Sir Lambalot is her busiest knight,
With quests to do both day and night.”
Queen Floss is determined to rid the land of dragons, giants and trolls, so she turns to Sir Lambalot and his trusty steed Ned to help. But when the brave knight meets these fearful creatures, he discovers they aren’t quite so scary after all. Written in rhyme and full of fun, this story has an important message about kindness, tolerance and acceptance.
Sir Lambalot is, by far, the cutest, sweetest, and loveliest children’s book I’ve read in a long time. Jude Lennon’s rhyming story is fun to read. I found it as entertaining as reading Dr. Seuss. I can’t imagine any child not loving this little beauty.
Queen Flossie is judgemental about the castoffs from society. They are misunderstood and face cruelty every day because they are different. But, Sir Lambalot teaches the queen that people just want love and acceptance.
Holly Bushnell’s illustrations are a magnificent contribution to Lennon’s words. The bright colors are amazing, and the lambs will delight anyone. The castle is my favorite illustration.
I am happy to award Sir Lambalot a full 5 out of 5 stars. This whole book comes together incredibly well, and I can’t wait to share it with my granddaughters. I would recommend this book to anyone with small children.
