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. . . .

About the Author
Tony Davis has worked as a book author, publisher, magazine editor and newspaper writer. He has written about cars, on and off, for nearly thirty years. He has driven some of the fastest, most expensive and most impressive vehicles ever built, yet retains a bizarre fascination with those at the other end of the spectrum, those created by designers and engineers who, as he puts it, think a tour de force is a bicycle race .

Gregory Rogers lives in Brisbane, Australia. He studied fine art and worked as a graphic designer before he began illustrating books. In 1995, Gregory became the first Australian illustrator to win the prestigious Kate Greenaway medal. In his spare time, he loves playing music. He also collects CDs, antiques, books, and anything that might get dusty.
