Cedric Thatchbottom is a knight in training, serving Sir Percival the Proud - a knight famed throughout the land for his glorious deeds. But life at Castle Bombast isn’t quite what Cedric was expecting - in fact, it’s a total KNIGHTMARE. Sir Percy is charged with guarding a mysterious - and very dangerous - criminal. He hires extra soldiers, reinforces his dungeon and even buys a guard dog. Short of cash, Percy had to skimp on his canine purchase - and guess who has to train the mangy mutt? Yep, it seems Cedric is the only squire for the job.
