The two little knights are back, just in time for the large knight tournament. And just like last time there is some seriousness beneath all the silliness: Why can’t girls do the same as boys? And does one HAVE to be tough and brave, just because one is a boy? The Middle Ages are almost at an end, after all!
It’s the annual knight tournament in Klampenburg, and Rosebush and Bang have been training for a whole year. They’ve probably snuck away a bit too because it’s a little dangerous to do both sword fighting and archery – not to mention jousting. (That’s when someone tries to push the other one down from the horse with a long pole.) They don’t really want to take part, but Princess Begonia does! The problem is just that the King has said she’s not allowed to take part because she’s a girl. So the two little knights must help her to secretly prepare for the tournament. They have to train her for the exercises and find armour that will hide her face. Neither of those things are easy!
Bjørn F. Rørvik is a master at silly humour with a good undertone, his stories are a joy to read out loud and in this book there’s loads of fun for children and adults. Camilla Kuhn has her own twist on the knights – they are recognisable, but still a little bit different from last time.
