STORY

 
The King’s popularity is flagging. His knights haven’t done anything bold or daring for years yet Gerry the serf dreams of being a knight. To add to the King’s woes, Dame Winnie Wimple’s Damsel Academy is on the loose, and Medlin the sorcerer and Sir Blackheart are up to something. 
 
The Queen decides that the King should hold a jousting tournament with the winner getting the pick of the damsels. Due to health and safety rules the joust is a shambles. Suddenly there is news of a dragon in the Greenwood. Whoever defeats the dragon will get a damsel and half the kingdom. The knights accept the challenge as does the mysterious Sir Valentine  (Gerry in disguise) aided by Dame Winnie and her maid, Sally. The quest has begun! 
 
But is there really a dragon? The damsel-distracted knights might never find out and.  Can Gerry find and kill the dragon and become a real knight? Can the Queen be trusted with Medlin’s confiscated spell book? And will the mad Madame Minx tame Sir Blackheart?
