We’re so happy to announce that Squire & Knight by Scott Chantler is a Junior Library Guild selection! 

JLG has a sixth sense for choosing award-worthy books. Editors review manuscript submissions before books are published; before they are reviewed; before there are any best-of nominations! Their Gold Standard Selections are based on merit. 

Squire & Knight by Scott Chantler is about a young squire who tackles mysteries, monsters and magic, but the inept knight he serves takes the credit. Every time. Squire is brainy, bookish, and terribly under-appreciated by the brawny, inept knight Sir Kelton, who somehow always gets all the glory. So when the two mismatched heroes find themselves in a cursed village plagued by a demonic dragon, Kelton rides off to slay it and Squire stays behind to catch up on some reading. But Squire starts to notice that something isn’t quite right about this town . . . Can he uncover its strange secrets? 

Scott Chantler is the critically-acclaimed, Eisner-nominated cartoonist of BIX, TWO GENERALS, and the THREE THIEVES series. SQUIRE & KNIGHT marks his triumphant return to the world of all-ages fantasy. He lives and works in Stratford, Ontario, Canada.

Scott Chantler is represented by Samantha Haywood.
