Don Winn’s rollicking tale teaches children the power of brains over brawn in “The Knighting of Sir Kaye.”

Oklahoma City, OK, December 17, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The first book in the Sir Kaye the Boy Knight™ series, "The Knighting of Sir Kaye" takes place in the troubled medieval land of Knox. The story centers on twelve-year-old Kaye Balfour, who wants nothing more than to be a famous knight like his father. But with his father away on court business, it seems as though Kaye will have to figure it out on his own until he rescues a boy named Reggie from some quicksand. Together they have plenty of carefree adventures until one day, an act of chivalry makes Kaye the queen’s surprising choice for a new knight. Suddenly, his world is turned upside down and in an effort to live up to his new responsibilities, he finds himself in a face-off against the n’er-do-well knights of Knox.

Indie Reader Review calls this book “a lively and adventurous kids’ book, full of gentle humor and warmth.” The book presents the idea that chivalry — defined here as helping others — makes an ordinary person a hero. Winn especially loves this series because his main characters must rely on their own wits to overcome challenges. “I love the fact that this story promotes the idea that anyone can be a hero, because being a real-life hero is about helping others, and it doesn’t take any special superpower to do that. It’s open to everyone,” says Mr. Winn.

"The Knighting of Sir Kaye" is the winner of the 2013 Indie Reader Discovery Award in the Kids category, the 2013 Moonbeam Children’s Book Award Silver Medal for general pre-teen fiction, the Royal Dragonfly Book Award First Place for a children’s chapter book, and a Mom’s Choice Awards® Gold Recipient. "The Knighting of Sir Kaye" is highly recommended for independent readers in grades 3 and up. It is also a great book for reading aloud, filled with non-stop action that will keep listeners hanging on every word.

Kaye is a relatable boy, who deals with many of the same issues any twelve-year-old might face. "The Knighting of Sir Kaye" is well-paced with plenty of action and humor. Young readers will be captivated by this page-turner and anxious for the next installment in the series. Those who are fans of Don M. Winn’s picture books can easily transition into chapter books with The Knighting of Sir Kaye. New readers—as well as parents—will surely become devotees of Winn’s lively, warm, and funny style.

Readers praise Sir Kaye:
“Every parent should have Sir Kaye on its child's bookshelf. This is a must read for any boy (or girl) wanting to understand how a good person is created.” - Jan Marquart, CEO and Founder of About the Author Network
