Free Lance and the Lake of Skulls

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

Free Lance is back for his third adventure! As a Knight with no master, Free Lance continues his journeys, travelling from village to village and castle to castle, competing in tournaments and working for his keep.

Yet when his horse throws a shoe, he is forced to seek shelter overnight in Lord Big Nose's village, and accepts his most dangerous mission yet – retrieving an enchanted crown from the Lake of Skulls.

The dream team of Stewart and Riddell are on fantastic form for this outing. The language is simple (designed to attract reluctant readers) yet loses none of Stewart’s trademark fantasy wit and grandeur. Meanwhile, Riddell’s illustrations are the perfect accompaniment, and as detailed and capturing as ever.
