Who Wrote It?

Elys is an author and illustrator based in Cambridge, where she studied children’s book illustration. She works predominantly with ink, new-fangled digital witchcraft and coloured pencils, of which she is the proud owner of 178, but can never seem to find a sharpener. When not doing pictures and making things up, Elys enjoys growing cacti, working on her PhD about funny picture books and eating excessive amounts of fondant fancies.

What's It About?

Dave is a dragon, but not a typical one. He’d much rather bury his nose in a book than a treasure hoard and when he picks up a second-hand copy of How to be a Knight, he knows he’s found his calling. Ably assisted by his trusty steed Albrecht who, though a goat, has all the requisite attributes – attitude, looks, glossiness, not to mention the ability to speak, and a decidedly colourful past – he sets out to win his knighthood.
