Puff the squirrel is nothing special. He's small, not particulary good at anything, and he would rather be collecting acorns and cherries with his best friends, Nibs and Tinderbug, than sword-fighting. So when Puff is chosen to be squire to Lord Pattercloud, the champion of Clan Grey, he's sure Lord Pattercloud has made a mistake. He has trouble with focus and coordination, two things that are clearly important to Lord Pattercloud. But when the champion of Clan Grey suddenly disappears, things take a turn for the worse.
