Cavall in Camelot: A Dog in King Arthur’s Court by Audrey Mackaman

“When Cavall and his brother Glessic leave the comfort of their simple barn to join the lavish court of Camelot, Cavall wants nothing more than to prove he’s a good dog to the great knights and dogs of the castle – especially to King Arthur.

Meanwhile, malevolent forces lurk in Camelot, and Cavall must figure out how to protect his person.”

She tries to venture past the manor’s walls, but she can’t hide her pale green skin or the deep purple circles under her eyes. The other children will be afraid of her, and no one will want to be her friend. But when Halloween rolls around, Ghoulia hatches a brilliant plan.”
