This board book with window cutaways that allow you to look deeper into the castle focuses on Mike the Knight. Mike begins with a tour of his bedroom before he takes you to meet his trusty steed Galahad down in the stables.

Next it is time to visit dragons Sparkie and Squirt in the castle's treasure room. From there Mike heads out to say hello to his sister Eve and her pet frog, Mr. Cuddles. Evie is in training to be a wizard and she is out in her workshop hollowed out of an old oak tree.

The final stop for Mike, Evie and their friends is the throne room where the Queen is about to serve some delicious snacks which you'll need after exploring Glendragon Castle.

The text of this colorful and sturdy book includes a series of questions that will engage the young reader. As you journey through the castle you'll be asked to locate a picture of Mike's father, count the ribbons Galahad has pinned on his stable wall, and find three trophies hidden in the treasure room.
