Tourmaline

Children’s book written by Davide Cali . A colourful fairy tale with a modern twist…

Somewhere far away, a beautiful princess called Tourmaline is imprisoned in a tall tower. Only the bravest knight of all can free her. Knight after knight is sure that he’s the bravest, but they all fail in their quest. They get tangled up in the forest, lose their way in a cornfield, don’t want to get their cloak dirty, become distracted or their horse lets them down. Luckily there’s one fearless knight who doesn’t let anything daunt him. Or should that be: daunt her?
