KIRKUS REVIEW

The Middle Ages and the days of chivalry are relit with wit in a fine funny retelling of the bucketmaker's apprentice anecdote from Mark Twain's I Trip Abroad. After Princess Rossile's latest armored suitor has perished at the maw and flame of the dragon the king wants killed, Richard, ever staying up all hours and inventing things in his bucket shop, extinguishes the dragon with his Secret Dragon Weapon- an air pressure fire extinguisher, and wins fame and the Princess. The author's suggestive drawings are laughable representations of surprise people, knights, pails and dragons.
