Fans of Big Nate or graduates of the Time Warp Trio will enjoy this medieval misadventure by Lincoln Pierce. At nearly 300 pages it feels hefty in the hand, but reads fast.
10 year old Max and friends set off to save Conrad the Kind King. Their quest features a wicked usurper king, an evil sorceress, a bumbling old wizard, dragons, kindly knights, swords and a tall tower.
I’d say you’d have a hard time deciding where to shelve this book– humor or graphic novel, fantasy perhaps–but once your readers catch sight of it, it’ll never be on the shelf anyway. It’s the kind of book that will be claimed straight from the returns bin.
Happy belated book birthday (1/8/19) to Max & the Midknights by Lincoln Pierce!
