1. Picture book, Traditional Literature
2. This epic story is about a knight, the Red Cross Knight, that was given a shield with a red cross on it. He is given a quest by the Queen of Fairies where his strength will be tested by killing a fierce dragon. On his journey, he encounters a princess, lamb, and dwarf who join him in his quest to help lead him to the dragon. Along their way to find and fight the dragon, the knight is faced with decisions that may pull him away from his objective.
3.a. Plot
b. The plot of this story is written very smoothly, one event leads to the next. Each page seems to flow along with each event that takes place.
c. For example, the first page describes how there is a knight that prepares to go on a journey to fight a dragon and the second page talks about how he runs into a princess, lamb, and dwarf who team up with him on his journey. Both were interesting, but ultimately they flowed really well.
4. I would use this book to teach students enrolled in an art class about illumination. This book has wonderful specific examples of it.
