The Knight Who Was Afraid of the Dark by Barbara Shook Hazen, Pictures by‎ Tony Ross

(Graded Reader)

I had never heard of this book before, but a colleague gave me a copy.  So I used it one of my children's classes.

The language in this book is actually not graded at all!  For a children's book, there is a lot of difficult language in this that went right over the heads of my ESL students.

But the pictures did such a great job of carrying the story that in the end the text didn't matter.
The pictures are really great.  There really funny illustrations, and my students got a big laugh out of all the pictures in this book.
