Stealing some of the glitterball limelight from Strictly Come Dancing, Sir Dancealot is out now from Bloomsbury. This nimble-toed young knight has a novel approach to combat – defeating his enemies through the medium of dance!
Written by acclaimed children’s author Timothy Knapman and illustrated by me, this is a hilarious story of sequinned clothes, dragon foes and twinkly toes.
From jiving away trolls to boogying aside bogglesnots and bopping off beasties, there’s not a fearsome foe Sir Dancealot can’t defeat.
But when a fire-breathing dragon arrives at the castle gates demanding a dance-off, everyone is worried.
Could this be one step too far for our hero of the dance floor?
Tim’s rhyming romp was a joy to illustrate. Although drawing a dancing, ice-skating dragon did present some challenges!

“This zany idea is perfectly executed through a jolly rhyming text and lively illustrations. Kids will love the idea of Strictly with dragons”
