More About Brave Young Knight by Karen Kingsbury; Gabrielle Grimard
 
 
 
Overview
In this picture book, Karen Kingsbury tells the story of a boy in competition with other young knights to become prince of all the land. In a series of contests and competitions, the king recognizes the brave young knight as the winner, not because he was the fastest or strongest, and not because he was smarter or more cunning than the other knights. Rather, the brave young knight is the winner because he doesn t follow the crowd, instead making decisions based on what is right and true and in accordance with his faith. The moral of the story is that the bravest young boys are those who exhibit the strongest character."

A quote from Psalm 25, "Show me your ways, O Lord," introduces the story of four knights from four villages vying for the honor of being "the bravest knight," in this companion to The Princess and the Three Knights. After tests of the knights' mental and physical skills, the winner will be crowned prince. While the knight from the "west" village, selected for his intelligence and kindness as much as his speed and strength, practices for each event and questions his ability to prevail, his father counsels him: "Follow God and he will help you run the race." Patchwork lawn, layered hills, and geometrical patterns on lattices, fabric, and woodwork decorate Grimard's medieval village scenes, showing both humble village huts and a turreted castle with streaming flags, while text appears against full-bleed full-page spreads of bright oranges, greens, and occasional white backdrops. Playful images add humor, such as the knight carrying armfuls of dogs to gain strength, but a lack of suspense mars the climactic scenes, as the knight's three competitors resort to trickery, while he alone honors the king's orders. A straightforward morality tale. Ages 4–7. (Apr.)
