The locals all fall off their tavern stools with surprise when a
strange figure arrives to the village. He says he is a knight, and he
does have a magnificent horse and a gleaming silver sword. But he is
wearing... a dress! Sir Ulrich has not dedicated his life to fighting
for one woman - he is fighting for Venus, the goddess of love, and he
will fight any knight in the land for her honour. Unfortunately,
fighting in a silk dress is not so easy.
An unusual tale, based on a real medieval knight, this story is full of Terry Deary's dark humour and dry wit.
