Overview To små riddere

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.»

Reviews To små riddere

Moderna riddare i en färgsprakande värld 07.05.2022

"Två små riddare" är en äventyrssaga med klassiska förtecken, men också en välkommen uppdatering av ett barnlitterärt persongalleri från förr och de snäva roller som riddare, prinsessor ock drakar tilldelatsgenom historien.

Resultatet är en rolig, litterär lovsång till det som gör oss unika. Men samtidigt en som också vilar på insikten om att vi alla trots allt är ganska lika.

To små riddere 11.11.2021

... man kan bli ganske myk om hjertet av de to ridderne

Bente Bing, Bentebings Weblog

En ridderdiktning for vår tid 25.06.2021

Her møter vi ridder Bang og ridder Rosenbusk som ikke er spesielt motiverte for å redde en prinsesse som på sin side ikke har noe stort behov for å bli reddet fra en drage som ikke er noe særlig farlig.

Alice Lima de Faria har skapt to forsiktige, små riddere som, til tross for få detaljer, uttrykker stor skepsis til riddergjerningen via blikk og kroppsspråk.

Slik blir To små riddere en tøysete bok med en viktig beskjed om at riddere godt kan være opptatt av sminke og leopardstøvler, mens prinsesser kanskje ikke alltid trenger å være så rosa og prinsessete.
