Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A knight who sets out to serve his young king is detained over and over again from reaching his destination. So many people desperately cry out for his help. As he stops to aid them, he fears he is becoming a knight errant, off on his own adventures, rather than a true knight serving his king. Finally, many years after his journey began, he arrives at the castle, convinced he has failed his king. Then he learns that court minstrels have been singing of his heroic deeds for years and that the king has appreciated his thoughtful actions all along. Mr. Keith's detailed, rich, and evocative illustrations add a magical dimension to the text. He patterned the knight on a photo of Ms. Tompert's father, who was her inspiration for the story. Her father was a selfless, hardworking man who postponed his dreams while he raised his children alone. The publisher's web site describes its children's books as "helping to create a more enlightened world through inner peace and self-awareness. While our books do inspire joy and laughter, they also promote respect, forgiveness, tolerance and love." It also mentions the number of adult readers touched by their books. This is borne out by a note on the book's back cover by Bernie Siegel, author and physician, who says, "'The Errant Knight' teaches the message I have learned from my patients: "When you live in your heart, magic happens." 2003, Illumination Arts Publishing Company, Ages 4 to 8.
