The Knight can't wait for her first camping trip! She and her horse Edward pack everything they need--including her beloved Teddy--and head out into the woods. But when it's time for bed, Teddy is nowhere to be found!
A helpful rabbit thinks this "Teddy" sounds familiar, and sends the Knight off to a cave... but that's no teddy bear in that cave. That's a real bear!
In this sweet, simple adventure, basic comics elements combine with the picture book format to create a picture book for the youngest of comics readers, and a fantastic introduction into the world of Adventures in Cartooning.
The creators of the Adventures in Cartooning books look to a younger audience with this first title in a picture-book series. Their romp stars the exuberantly self-centered knight and her long-suffering horse, Edward, and it's bursting with exclamation points, silly jokes, and slapstick humor. The knight is planning a camping trip, as knights do, and she loads up her trusty steed with the essentials: her rock collection, her scooter, and her teddy bear, packing everything into a massive gray sack on Edward's back. Despite his heavy load, she's the one who collapses with fatigue within sight of the castle walls. "That's it for today, Edward, I can't go any farther. Let's make camp here!" she exclaims, taking out the marshmallows. "I only brought 30 bags. I hope that's enough." After she discovers that her teddy is missing, sleep is out of the question for everyone until he's found. The story bubbles with an inexhaustible energy, never snarky or overreaching, while the endpapers and their directions for drawing the story's characters invite readers to create episodes of their own. Ages 3 5.
