Description

An endearing tale about finding creative ways to confront your fears.

In a curious little kingdom on top of a forest lived a little knight. He loved cats and chocolate cake. He wasn't afraid of mice or the dark . . . but he was terrified of the rain! One day, a huge storm descended on the village. The little knight took refuge in the fortress, and he stayed there for a long, long time. But he knew that, for the sake of his subjects, he would have to get up the courage to confront his fears.
