Cookery and chivalry mix together well in this cream puff of a tale.

 - Kirkus Reviews

"In this tale that espouses making dough not war, a young knight happens upon a dragon's cave full of unusual cooking ingredients, and the two quickly bond over their love of cooking, creating many mouthwatering confections together. However, in this magical kingdom where knights and dragons are required to battle and friendships between the two are specifically forbidden, this duo is slated to face off in an upcoming event. The friends continue to bake but are so distracted by their anxiety that their pastries are misshapen, and one actually resembles a dragon. They devise a plan to circumvent the law by spearing and devouring pastries shaped like knights and dragons, rather than the actual live beings. The lighthearted tone set by the clever title is reflected in the brief, buoyant, rhyming text, and further heightened by the cartoon style of the vividly colored digital illustrations. While there are many stories with this theme, the pairing of knights and dragons with delicious food gives this one extra appeal." -- Booklist
