Reggie’s dry sense of humor makes him a companionable narrator; this, along with some brisk action sequences and Allred’s occasional b&w illustrations, should give Winn’s story solid, broad appeal...Fortitude, good will, and friendship triumph over pettiness in this enjoyable story.

"A lively and adventurous kids' book, full of gentle humorand warmth."--IndieReader Review
Kaye is an ordinary boy who likes exploring and dreams of being a legendary knight like his father. But good knights are hard to find in Knox since the king died. When the new queen knights Kaye for doing a brave deed to help another person, he gets his wish a lot sooner than he expected. Being a knight is a dream come true for Kaye...but he's got a lot to live up to. Can he hold his own against all the other knights who hate him? Can he outwit the terrible Sir Melchor and defeat him in the deeds-at-arms competition that all knights in the kingdom must participate in? Can he help the queen save her kingdom...even a little bit?
 

About Don M. Winn

Don Winn is the premier author and creator of Cardboard Box Adventures (CBA), an independent boutique publisher focusing on books that are designed to inspire children’s imaginations and encourage parents and children to read aloud together and to talk about what they’ve read. CBA’s offerings currently include nine picture books for ages 4-8 as well as the first novel in a six-book series planned for grades 3 and up. The name, Cardboard Box Adventures, comes from one of Don's favorite childhood activities: playing with a big, empty cardboard box. The box could be anything he imagined it to be...a rocket ship, a submarine, a fort, a tent, a cave...the possibilities were endless. And so through his light-hearted stories, Don Winn hopes to encourage children to use and develop their imagination in many ways. Because although imaginary childhood adventures are a wonderful beginning, it's also true that continuing to foster imagination in children helps them to learn and grow, to solve problems, and to become more empathetic and compassionate adults.
