Cedric Thatchbottom can’t wait to train as a squire, serving Sir Percival the Proud – a knight famed throughout the land for his glorious deeds. But this famous knight isn’t all he appears to be, and Cedric soon finds himself being run ragged around Castle Bombast by his new master. After a suspected break in, Sir Percy decides that what Castle Bombast needs is a guard dog. But nothing can prepare Cedric for the amount of chaos caused by one slobbery hound.
