A foolish knight is certain that his side of the wall is the safe side in this clever, amusing and timely picture book.
A little knight is very happy that his wall protects him from the dangers that are sure to lurk on the other side. However, he is too busy mending a hole in his wall to notice the mounting dangers on his own side. Luckily he is rescued by one of the ‘baddies’ on the other side, and finds out that the other side of the wall is actually a much pleasanter place to be.
