Description

Roland Wright has been a page at Twofold Castle for just a month and already he has impressed the King's bravest knights. Now Roland is off to his first tournament, where knights from near and far take part in a full day of jousting. He's only meant to be watching. But when the fearsome Little Douglas, a young page from another castle, throws down a challenge, things get serious. All too quickly, Roland is thrust into the action. It's all he can do to just stay on his feet. . . .
