About the book – Knights and Bikes
Welcome to the sleepy island of Penfurzy in Cornwall, where nothing exciting ever really happens. OR DOES IT? Adventure awaits Demelza and her new best friend in the whole world, Nessa, as they explore the island and uncover the mysteries of the Penfurzy Knights.
With a honking pet goose sidekick, quirky islanders and a legendary treasure to find, it’s up to Nessa and Demelza to ride their bikes, solve the puzzles before them, and face down danger with frisbees, water-balloons, feathers… and a toilet plunger. Will the girls be able to life an ancient and deadly curse that no adult has ever been able to prevent?
