Sir Cassie to the Rescue
by Linda Smith
Cassie has just read a story about a knight rescuing a damsel in distress. Now she wants to play. She becomes Sir Cassie, but no one wants to be the damsel. Even her baby sister Amanda refuses to cooperate. Sir Cassie is resourceful, though, and everyone does get involved in the game, even Towser, the dog, who makes an amazing dragon. And the queen serves up a royal feast!
