A Good Knight's Rest by Shellley Moore Thomas- ADVISABLE

Thomas, Shelley Moore.  Plecas, Jennifer.  A Good Knight’s Rest, 32 pages. Dutton Juvenile, 2011.  $16.99.  Inside cover: “The Good Knight is tired.  He needs a vacation.  Get some rest, the king tells him.  The Good Knight thinks that’s a very good idea.  But when his three little dragon friends tag along, relaxation becomes impossible.  “I’m hungry,” says the first dragon.  “I’m thirsty,” says the second.  “I need to use the bushes,” says the third.  And that’s just the start!  Now the Good Knight is afraid he might do something very not good. How will he ever get the rest he needs? It’s a rollicking vacation adventure every little dragon- and parent- will recognize.”  Fun and adorable book!  We enjoyed every page.  The illustrations are inviting and bright.  The ending is tender and sweet.  ADVISABLE.  EL (K-3).  Reviewer: SL.
