Trenk has big big dreams of being a knight, and he has all the courage and dedication necessary to be the best knight ever. He just doesn’t have the size. Or age. Or any of the general skills necessary to be the best knight ever. TRENK, THE LITTLE KNIGHT is a hopeful knight’s tale about a boy with a dream and maybe just the means to accomplish the impossible. Motivated by the possibility to overthrow his evil lord, little peasant boy Trenk sets into town to vie for knighthood and the chance to defeat the local dragon. But he can’t do it alone. With the help of his pet Piggeldy, Sir Hans, Momme Mumm, and Sir Hans' daughter, Thekla (who has knight dreams of her own), Trenk just might be able to ascend to knighthood after all. Charismatic and fun for the whole family, TRENK, THE LITTLE KNIGHT is a pleasant reminder that bravery, courtesy, honor, and gallantry are not size restrictive. –T.W.
