About the Book

Knight and Horse are drifting off to sleep when Knight has a magical dream. In his vision, he sees the most scrumptious soft golden cookies he has ever laid his eyes on. The delicious treats call to him: Go and find the golden cookies. When Knight wakes up, he gets Horse ready for their journey, and they go trotting along in search of the golden goods. But the cookies are nowhere to be found! Knight and Horse finally return home to the castle, where a surprise in the kitchen rewards their valiant quest.

This kid-friendly Don Quixote-like knight's tale with a simple text and delightful illustrations by Caldecott Honor-winner Betsy Lewin is a mouthwatering treat for emerging readers.


★ "The loony plot and the spirited pen-and-ink-and-watercolor illustrations elevate this book above most for emerging readers. . . . Clear text, amusing illustrations, and a captivating easy-to-read story make this a winner."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
