Elephant Joe, brave knight, will! (With his trusty sidekick, Zebra Pete, of course.) But there's an unexpected twist in this tale. Is the damsel in distress who she seems to be? And what happens when Elephant Joe and Zebra Pete wake the dragon guarding the Dark Knight's tower? There'll be lots of jousting and heroics before it's all over in this comical adventure from British author-illustrator David Wojtowycz. And we mean comic-al! Witty asides and clever dialogue in word balloons add to the hilarity and captivating design.
