ABOUT “BROTHERS OF THE KNIGHT”
Brothers of the Knight recounts the adventures of the youthful Knight brothers who, for reasons known only to themselves, leave torn-up shoes by their bed every morning. Their father, a strict preacher, has forbidden them to dance; however, the boys sneak out every night to dance the night away in the Big-Bad Ballroom until their housekeeper, Sunday, secretly follows them and solves the mystery of the torn up shoes.
