Don Quixote Paperback
Illustrated by Chris Riddell
Part of the Walker Illustrated Classics series
The famous tale of Don Quixote, an elderly Spanish gentleman, who reads one too many chivalric romances, and decides to become a knight errant, accompanied by his faithful "squire" Sancho Panza.
He sets off on his travels through sixteenth-century spain to right wrongs and rescue damsels in distress but his adventures - such as the famous incident in which he mistakes windmills for giants and attacks them - are both comic and romantic.
In the end he returns to his village, a dying man who still believes in heroes and is a hero himself.
