I Am A Real Knight
‘Ik ben een Échte Ridder’ (I Am A Real Knight) tells the story of Jos, a headstrong girl who dreams of becoming a knight. She knows everything there is to know about knights and is already highly skilled. She can fight battles with her sword and ride a horse with confidence. However, to become a real knight, one must defeat a monster. A dangerous beast with massive fangs and claws that must be fought in order to protect the kingdom’s citizens. Therefore, Jos has one thing on her to-do list: finding and defeating a monster. How hard can it be?
