World Book Day illustrator, Alex T Smith has written and illustrated his ninth picture book, Hector and the Big Bad Knight, published by Scholastic this month. Hector and his sidekick chicken, Norman, battle the evil Knight who has stolen Granny's magic wand. Can the tiniest boy in the village outsmart the naughty Knight and his humongous hungry dragon? Well, anything is possible with just little bit of magic and a bag of crisps!
To celebrate World Book Day, Alex also shows us 'How to Draw a Knight' in a series of pictures for The Guardian online.
