The Knight can't wait for her first camping trip! She and her horse Edward pack everything they need--including her beloved Teddy--and head out into the woods. But when it's time for bed, Teddy is nowhere to be found!

“The story bubbles with an inexhaustible energy, never snarky or overreaching, while the endpapers and their directions for drawing the story's characters invite readers to create episodes of their own.” —Publishers Weekly

"Laid out with large, colorful easy-to-follow panels, doodlelike figures engaged in all kinds of appealing slapstick situations, and big, bold speech bubbles, this is a solid introduction to graphic novels for a young audience." —Booklist
