Fendley and the Lost Knight: Fendley Turtle is a children’s picture book written by Greg Flynn and illustrated by Ghyvari. Fendley wanted to play knights and dragon with his little brother, Danny, but Fendley just couldn’t find his knight. His mom assured him that his knight must be somewhere in the house, but she had chores to do first -- and so did he. Fendley and Danny were sent off to clean up their rooms, while their mom did the laundry. Their dad was involved in the housekeeping also; he got up from watching TV and begin filling up the kitchen sink with warm sudsy water. Their dad explained that everyone needed to take part in making their house clean and comfortable. Fendley finally gave in and started on his room. He actually felt pretty good once it was organized and neat. Then his mother suggested the one place where he hadn’t looked.

Greg Flynn’s children’s picture book, Fendley and the Lost Knight: Fendley Turtle, addresses the issue of the dreaded household chores in a fun and lighthearted story about a young turtle who’s lost his toy. Flynn’s story illustrates the power of cooperation as mom, dad and kids all work together to keep their house nice. The surprises under the boys’ beds are an extra treat. Ghyvari’s illustrations are bold and brightly colored, and they do a grand job of making this turtle family feel real. No one really enjoys doing chores, at least most of us don’t, but as Fendley discovers, sometimes doing chores can be somewhat like a treasure hunt. Fendley and the Lost Knight: Fendley Turtle is highly recommended.
