Endpapers provide instructions to draw the Knight and Edward as well as the newly introduced characters of the gnomes and the ogres, including such tongue-in-cheek flourishes as an Elvis ogre or “struttin’ ” gnome...Guaranteed to make readers feel like they’ve woken up on the right side of the bed.

Synopsis

The knight and her horse, Edward, have made a startling discovery: there are three huge ogres asleep at her doorstep! When they wake up, the kingdom is in big trouble! The knight, Edward, and some garden gnomes fight back, not with swords and shields, but with potato peelers and spoons. It turns out that ogres are pretty friendly when they have full stomachs!
