The third hilarious instalment in the highly illustrated series about Knight Sir Louis – a calm courageous hero in a rather bonkers world.
King Burt the Not Bad is in a huff with his chief dragon-slayer, Knight Sir Louis. So when a stranger with piercing green eyes and a devastating smile arrives at Castle Sideways, King Burt is thrilled and demotes Louis to chief cleaner. But Louis is suspicious about the stranger, Squire Lyme, with his charming compliments and endless supply of green gummies… with the help of his friends Reader Catalogue, Pearlin, his haiku-loving steed, Clunkalot as well as a few ogres and gnomes, our hero determines to get to the slimy bottom of things… can Louis’ calm courage once again save the day? Author Myles McLeod shares his joy at returning to write the latest Knight Sir Louis: ‘The joy of Knight Sir Louis is returning to the fun and silly characters and seeing what they do next. What new invention or potion will the wizard Pearlin discover? What daft thing will feckless leader King Burt the Not Bad agree to? But also, there’s a real joy in discovering the new characters who bring something fresh and unexpected to the land of Squirrel Helm. In the latest book, there’s an army of gnomes, a hoard of ogres and a thousand year old wizard made of slime. In the first draft there was also someone called Silent Steve who took a vow of silence. But he was so quiet he didn’t make it to the second draft.’
The Sorcerer of Slime is the third Knight Sir Louis instalment, hot on the heels of Knight Sir Louis and the Dreadful Damsel, and Knight Sir Louis and the Dragon of Doooooom! With Greg’s zany illustrations and comic strips interspersing Myles’ hilarious story, Knight Sir Louis is perfect for fans of Tom Gates and Bunny Vs Monkey as well as for reluctant and dyslexic readers.
