The princess has gone missing – has she been kidnapped by the dragon? Rosebush and Bang are sent off to bring her back. But it isn’t as easy as you might think. The Princess always causes so much fuss, and the dragon isn’t exactly a cuddly toy… and besides, Rosebush has just polished his sword. Maybe they should just drop the whole thing?
That’s when Bang gets a text from the king – with dungeon emojis and all. No, it looks as if they’ll just have to get the job done!
This is a book about courage and heroic deeds, about getting dressed up and a little bit about not being all that bothered about princesses – or girls in general.
Meet Rosebush and Bang – two good friends who think it’s a bit scary to be knights!
«… a fun book with an important message: that knights can very well care for makeup and leopard prints, while princesses maybe don’t always have to be so pink and princess-like.»
Modern knights in a colorful world
«Two little knights is a fairytale story with classical signifiers, but also a welcome update to the gallery of literary personas in children’s fiction, and the restrictive roles that knights, princesses and dragons have been dealt throughout history.
The result is a fun, literary love song to what makes us all unique. But at the same time, resting on the insight that we are very much the same, after all.»
