From the best-selling author of Horrible Histories...
Sir Robert Hylton is the last knight of the grand Hylton Castle, and by far the worst. His servants live in fear of his violent and cruel temper, terrified of doing anything that might displease their master. And when absent-minded stable boy Roger Skelton makes a fateful mistake, they learn just how cruel Hylton's last knight really is...
A strange and exciting tale, based on a real medieval knight, this story is full of Terry Deary's dark humour and dry wit.
