The Knight can't wait for her first camping trip! She and her horse Edward pack everything they need--including her beloved Teddy--and head out into the woods. But when it's time for bed, Teddy is nowhere to be found!

A helpful rabbit thinks this "Teddy" sounds familiar, and sends the Knight off to a cave... but that's no teddy bear in that cave. That's a real bear!

In this sweet, simple adventure, basic comics elements combine with the picture book format to create a picture book for the youngest of comics readers, and a fantastic introduction into the world of Adventures in Cartooning.

    Knight and his horse, Edward, go on an eventful camping trip. Good, silly graphic fun for younger readers.
  • (4/5)
    The Knight is going on her first camping trip! And she can’t wait! She and her horse, Edward, pack everything they need...well maybe a bit more than they need. She almost forgot the most important thing though, Teddy! She can’t sleep without him. Finally the Knight and Edward make it to their camping spot, but after eating marshmallows and getting ready for sleep she can’t find Teddy! Where is he? A helpful bunny thinks Teddy sounds familiar and points her to a cave where...a bear waits! But where the heck is Teddy?In this book the creators of Adventures in Cartooning, provide a laugh out loud story of a young Knight and her horse going off on their first camping trip. The writers have created a fantastic and fun character in the Knight and her horse, one that is easily relatable to all ages, because after all how many of us haven’t gone and looked for our teddy bears before heading off over night? Beyond that though, there are laughs at every page turn from the camping spot (just across the moat of the castle) to overeating marshmallows to....well you need to read the book to find out the rest. The illustrations are brightly colored, with heavy black lines to help make the characters really pop out. The Knight is such a great character, and kids are sure to connect with the way she moves on the page as something they do themselves, especially when climbing trees. Even better though, all of the characters are simply designed so that kids (and adults) can draw their own book with the Knight, Edward, and Teddy. The authors invite the readers to continue the story...which is one of the best things ever. Safe to say this simple story and great illustrations is a book that adults won’t mind reading again and again. And a great book for young readers to pick up and read on their own as they can easily read the pictures as well. I give the book 4 out of 5 stars.ARC provided by NetGalley

    Children love humor, comics, and drawing books. Sleepless Knight (2015) by James Sturm, Andrew Arnold, and Alexis Frederick-Frost has it all. Even the pun in the book’s title will make elementary children giggle.Many young readers will be familiar with the characters from Adventures in Cartooning. In this hilarious episode, the Knight along with Edward the horse embark on a camping adventure. Everything goes as planned until it’s bedtime and a beloved teddy bear goes missing.From the well-drawn panels to the easy-to-read speech bubbles, the book models outstanding sequential art writing. Many children want to make their own cartoons. Unfortunately some youth, particularly boys, have trouble with fine-motor control and quickly become frustrated. Sturm, Arnold, and Frederick-Frost make drawing fun and easy. Whether following the step-by-step visual instructions for drawing a knight or a bear, all children will be successful creating their own stories that extend the fun of Sleepless Knight.Graphic novels for young readers fly off the shelves. Sleepless Knight is an outstanding example of a quality comic for youth.
