A funny, exciting series for younger readers, by the bestselling Vivian French and David Melling.

Sam J. Butterbiggins’ only ambition is to be a Very Noble Knight, but he has a problem – he’s been packed off to the castle next door to stay with his aunt, uncle and annoying cousin Prune while his parents are away.

But when Aunt Egg orders Sam and Prune to journey to Weasel’s Hill to deliver Horace the warthog back to his owner, it looks like the young knight-in-training looks will have to put his quest on hold. Or will he …?
