Sleepless Knight by James Strum
About The Book:
The Knight can't wait for her first camping trip! She and her horse Edward pack everything they need - including her beloved Teddy - and head out into the woods. But when it's time for bed, Teddy is nowhere to be found! A helpful racoon thinks this "Teddy" sounds familiar, and sends the Knight off to a cave...but that's no teddy bear in that cave. That's a bear! In this sweet, simple adventure, basic comics elements combine with the picture book format to create a picture book for the youngest of comics readers, and a fantastic introduction into the world of Adventures in Cartooning.
I love that the Knight in the story is a girl! Nice to see that. This is a great way to introduce comics to younger kids, especially those who have an interest in drawing!
