“Queen Floss lives in a castle grand,
The finest one across the land.
Sir Lambalot is her busiest knight,
With quests to do both day and night.”
Queen Floss is determined to rid the land of dragons, giants and trolls, so she turns to Sir Lambalot and his trusty steed Ned to help. But when the brave knight meets these fearful creatures, he discovers they aren’t quite so scary after all. Written in rhyme and full of fun, this story has an important message about kindness, tolerance and acceptance.

Sir Lambalot was cute illustrated children’s book that revolved around the knight, Sir Lambalot who went on Queen’s quests. Story was about kindness, presumptions and misunderstanding and listening others.
The story was written in rhymes that were fun to read and would appeal young readers. Illustrations were colourful and beautiful. I liked the way characters were drawn and their expressions were perfect.
Sir Lambalot who was Queen’s busiest knight. He was brave, bold and kind who went on not just one quest but three in this short picture book and it was great to see how he helped all those who needed and ended up teaching not just queen but readers.
Best thing was the message in the book. This story would change kids’ view toward troll, giants and dragons showing there is nothing to fear about them. Through this story parents and kids could discuss about how it’s better to know people before making assumptions about anyone that might cause misunderstanding. If we listen others first, what they have to say, we can avoid the awkwardness and problems.
Overall, Sir Lambalot was fun, colourful and beautifully illustrated children’s book written in rhymes that kids would love and parents and teacher would love to read to kids.
