Inhaltsangabe: Exhausted from his crusades, our hero, Sir Cedric teh Good, decides he and his men should vacation in Jerusalem. Accompanying them is his lovely wife, Lady Matilda, and their daughter, Edwina the Fair, who is secretly known as Edwina the Pest because of her very unladylike ways. They make it as far as Palestine with nary mishap, but there pesty Edwina decides to go exploring. Lady Matilda is frantic with worry, and quite vexed when she finds Edwina, until--egads!--they are both captured by evil Abdul the Heavy. Will Edwina have to marry Abdul? Will Lady Matilda become his cook? Or will Sir Cedric save the day and come to their rescue? Of course he will! Beautifully detailed watercolor illustrations enhance this lively tale.
Roy Gerrard's most recent book, Sir Cedric, was selected as a Booklist Children's Editors' Choice and one of the New York Times Best Illustrated Books of 1984. He lives in England.
From Publishers Weekly:
Sir Cedric, last seen in Sir Cedric, is still in the business of good and evil. He and Lady Matilda had been living fairly happily ever after with their prankish daughter, Edwina the Fair. Edwina delights in tormenting her devoted admirer, Hubert the Hopeless, until Sir Cedric tires of her mischief. He swoops them all off to vacation in Jerusalem, via Palestine. They've barely set foot in the country when first Edwina, and then Matilda, are captured by the infidel bandits of Abdul the Heavy (who has "Fatima" tattooed on his arm). Abdul plans to make Edwina his 23rd wife. Sir Cedric rushes to the rescue, but Hubert is the true knight errant. Exotic landscapes and intricate architectural details, combined with Gerrard's grand verse, bring the Middle Ages effectively to 20th century readers. Those who side with Sir Cedric will hail his latest adventure; others may find his views too absolute.
