From the best-selling author of Horrible Histories...

Spain, 1099

Cristina is a serving girl at the palace of Valencia, and she has a reputation for being cowardly. El Cid, King Alfonso's greatest knight, is a master of terror. Tomorrow he marches on the blood thirsty Berbers at the city gates, and Cristina must lead him into battle under very strange circumstances... can she find the courage to take the reins and save the day?

An unusual tale, based on a real medieval knight, this story is full of Terry Deary's dark humour and dry wit.
