Author(s): David Melling
A stunning sequel to the award-winning title The Kiss That Missed. The lovable and haphazard knight is back on another quest to find the finest feathers in the kingdom to fill the royal pillow and stop the little princess making that terrible noise!
A wonderful story infused with love and humour about a new sibling, the problem of a crying baby and just what to do about it.
