Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing would like to present MIKE THE KNIGHT.
MIKE THE KNIGHT is a “brand new series for preschoolers based on the hit TV show from Nickelodeon. Set in the medieval land of Glendragon, MIKE THE KNIGHT takes you through a world of castles, quests, dragons, and trolls! Mike is a young knight-in-training who is always looking for knightly adventures with his trusty steed, Galahad and his best friends, the dragons Sparkie and Squirt.”
Mike is a wonderful role model for children! Read along and join his adventures… tackling many obstacles BIG and small… and learning valuable lessons too!
$3.99 (ages 3-7)
Mike the Knight gives a tour of Glendragon that’s worthy of a king. And Mike’s father is the King of Glendragon, so he would know! Meet Mike’s sister, Evie, and his two best friends, Sparkie and Squirt—who happen to be dragons! Visit Ma and Pa Troll and their son, Trollee, who also wants to be a knight. Then stop by the castle and the arena, where Mike trains for jousting tournaments! So grab your sword, shield, and trusty steed and join in this adventure that’s perfect for young knights-in-training everywhere.
What I thought: What a wonderful role model for my kids. Mike is brave, strong and wants to be just like his dad! My husband read this story to our son and together they learned about Mike, his friends and family. Not only do they have grand adventures together, but it focuses on teamwork… and chores! Yes, this book puts a nice spin on the importance of chores.
$5.99 (comes with stickers; ages 3-7)
When Mike and Evie discover that knights who perform good deeds receive beautiful scarves from the Queen, they set out to perform good deeds for everyone in the kingdom. But since they don’t work together, instead of being perfect helpers, they end up making a perfect mess! Then Mike and Evie realize it’s time to ―be a knight, do it right—and when they work together, they make a great team. A team with beautiful scarves!
What I thought: First of all, I really love the stickers, but I don’t love that they are attached to the book. My daughter is a major sticker fanatic and likes to put them everywhere. Having stickers attached to the book equals stickers being placed on the pages of the book by a 3 year old! So, parent’s PLEASE remove the stickers before allowing your child to read this book. The story is very cute… sometimes trying to do a good deed doesn’t always work out the way we want it to, especially if siblings don’t work together! We all have our own points-of-view. Working together and figuring it out will almost always make the job easier!
$15.99 hardcover/$3.99 paperback (Level One: Star Reader ~ easy sight words and words to sound out, simple plot and dialogue, familiar topics and themes)

What I thought: I love that this is a book my kids and I can read together. Logan is just learning how to read on his own… so now he gets to read to me (and I give him helpful hints).
Shaped Board Book: $6.99
A knight-in-training like Mike needs loyal, fun, adventurous friends….and that’s just what he has in his best friends Sparkie and Squirt! This board book has sturdy pages that are perfect for Mike’s youngest fans.
What I thought: Board books are wonderful for younger children. My daughter loves to turn the pages while I read to her. The story is very cute… and again the theme of working together is emphasized.
