Kerry needs to get home, and fast – he’s carrying important medicine to save his family. But when a shortcut through the forest turns longer and more dangerous than he expected, he may need help getting out in time.
Kerry and the Knight of the Forest is, to me, reminiscent of old fairytales or folktales. While not very complex in its narrative, it centers around one moral theme – who to trust? Kerry is constantly lead astray by the creatures and children of the forest, as he believes unfailingly in seeing the best in everyone. Even when danger is apparent, he is determined to trust those who have not yet shown any intention of doing him harm. I absolutely adored this book’s art style and the character cards at the end, which made the whole thing feel like D&D or a video game. Kerry and the Knight of the Forest may be a simple read, but it is refreshing in its simplicity.
