Publisher's Summary

William has just received the best present of his life - an old, real-looking stone and wooden model of a castle, with a drawbridge, a moat, and a finger-high knight to guard the gates. It’s the mysterious castle his housekeeper has told him about, and even though William is sad she’s leaving, now the castle is his!
William can’t wait to play with the castle - he’s certain there’s something magical about it. And sure enough, when he picks up the tiny silver knight, it comes alive in his hand! Sir Simon tells William a mighty story of wild sorcery, wizards, and magic. And suddenly William is off on a fantastic quest to another land and another time - where a fiery dragon and an evil wizard are waiting to do battle....

My husband read this as a kid and wanted to share it with our daughter. It took some time to get rolling and capture her attention but it was great for bedtime.
