Description

 

See below for English description.

Dans un merveilleux royaume juché au sommet de grands arbres vit un petit chevalier qui aime les chats et les gâteaux au chocolat. Il passe de longues journées à lire et à jardiner, et de longues nuits à ronfler paisiblement dans son lit.

Un jour, trois de ses loyaux sujets se font enlever par des monstres horribles. N'écoutant que son courage, le petit chevalier file vers la forêt pour les libérer et revient vainqueur. Lorsque les monstres réapparaissent pour prendre leur revanche, le petit chevalier, contrairement à toutes attentes, les accueille avec douceur et gentillesse… Ces vilains monstres n'avaient-ils besoin que d'un peu de tendresse pour devenir meilleurs?

 

In a curious kingdom built on top of a forest lives a little knight. He has no battles, because there are no enemies around. He spends long days reading and planting flowers, long nights dreaming and snoring peacefully.

But one day he wakes with a start to a loud knocking at his fortress door. Three of his loyal subjects have been kidnapped! The little knight vows to return them safely to their families. With fresh chocolate cake in his belly, he sets off into the dark forest to find the monsters holding them captive. And when he does, he uses a surprising and effective approach to bring them home and find peace in the kingdom.

Original title:The Little Knight Who Battled Monsters
