Brave King Jack and his faithful knights, Sir Zack and baby Casper, spend all day fighting fierce dragons and terrible beasts in their homemade fort. But night is falling, bedtime is looming, and playtime is nearly over. When Sir Zack and Caspar are taken inside for bed, King Jack - alone on his throne - finds himself feeling a bit less brave . . . especially when he hears a thing approaching, a thing with four legs.

A fantasy adventure and comforting bedtime tale in one. With Helen Oxenbury's spare, expressive illustrations, this classic in the making is perfect for imaginative preschoolers everywhere, and certainly for fans of There's a Nightmare in my Closet and Where the Wild Things Are.
