Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Pat Trattles
Ricky, Van Genechten's loveable little rabbit first introduced in 1998, reclines against the old oak tree and dreams of magical adventures, like flying a rocket ship to far- off planets, curing sick animals, or becoming a world famous singer. Today he dreams he is a knight in the Middle Ages who captures fire-spitting dragons, locks them in his dungeon, and feeds them only buckets full of water—to extinguish the fire inside. He dreams that Princess Annabelle comes to his castle and they roast carrots over the hearth fire. He dreams of riding off on his steed to deliver secret messages to other knights in Scotland or Japan. Delivering secret messages is hard work, however, and he soon grows tired. Knight Ricky rests under the old oak tree while his steed drinks from a nearby pond. Suddenly Ricky wakes with a start when he hears his friend, Annie, call for help. It is Ricky to the rescue as he saves Annie, the damsel in distress, from the clutches of the fire-spitting monster, who in this case happens to be the neighbor dog, Boris. A simple story, with just a smattering of information on life in the Middle Ages, young children will delight in Knight Ricky's tale. Its charm comes as much from Van Genechten's colorful drawings as from the text. Children will delight in finding the silly looking dragon even on pages where he is not part of the story.
