Dragon's Hoard (A Knight's Story, No. 3) Reviews
the third book in "A Knight's Story" by Paul Stewart, illustrated by Chris Riddell. written in first person. Sir Knight is drawn into a plot to discover treasure and is forced to deal with a shifty merchant.. a lovely maiden and a wretched dragon! Stewart's style of writing is sarcastic, realistic and extremely entertaining. his characters are colorful (which Riddell brings to life) written for a younger audience, just means they are meant to be entertaining.. writing for children is tricky.. have to hold their attention, they won't plow through a book like "grown-ups" will.
I read this book to all my boys. Like all of Paul Stewart's books, it really has a lot of swash-buckling excitement and humor that kids of all ages enjoy. The plot moves quickly, and it's not too long for a young reader.The only drawback is the illustrations...they're very "sophisticated" and don't really belong in a child's book. Some are very suggestive depictions of women, and a couple are unnecessarily gorey.
