by : Cornelia Funke / Daniela Kohl

2021

Loewe Verlag

Description

English title: Knighthood and Dragon's Blood
ISBN: 9783743206168

About the Book:
This book contains 5 of Cornelia Funke's popular stories:
- The Monster in the Moat
- The Nameless Knight
- The Stolen Princes
- Knight Griesbart and his Dragon
- Gawein of Grauschwanz and Meg the Terrible

Fighting an annoying knight day in and day out? Much too boring, the dragon thinks. Let Griesbart wave his sword around as much as he wants – the dragon now enjoys a nice day.
In five stories, children learn about the exciting world of knights, dragons and princesses from a completely different perspective. Whether it’s about a cunning dragon who sings his attackers to sleep or a princess who becomes a feared tournament opponent. Whether it’s the brave mouse knights who are up to all the tricks, or a dragon who is fed up with over-motivated knights - everyone can take their fate into their own hands!
