There once was a young knight who lived in a village on the west side of the kingdom. In the busy streets and cozy houses of the village everyone knew the young knight. He could run like the wind, carry a dog under each arm, and solve the toughest puzzles.
When the young knight passed by, people smiled and said, "Someday that knight will be named the best and bravest in the kingdom, and the west village will be honored."
One time, the young knight of the west village saw a woman carrying a load of bricks. The young knight hurried to her side. "Ma'am," he said, "may I carry your bricks?" Every day after that, the young knight met the woman at the brickyard and carried her bag of bricks until her house was built.

In this fairy tale of The Brave Young Knight, a young Knight who lived in a village on the west side of the kingdom always went around helping those who needed help. He, along with other knights was in a competition to be the new Prince. The competition had several events and the one that did their best would be the new king. Some of the knights did things that made them look better, but didn't exactly go by the rules, but the young knight from the west did as he was told, and did his best. Who do you think was crowned the Prince?
I like that Karen Kingsbury takes an old story and telling it to children using her usual Christian theme throughout. I also appreciate the father son relationship in the story because of the fathers influence in their child's life.
I love the vibrant colorful illustrations in this book, reinforcing the story in pictures. The pictures will make the young reader feel like they are in a castle where they can pretend they can meet the Prince and all of the young knights. These illustrations will make the child's imagination run wild!
I recommend this book for young children as well as public, school and church libraries.
