Editorial Reviews

With characters reminiscent of a Monty Python sketch and a knight with a Don Quixote complex, this romp through the land of King Arthur is a gem." - School Library Journal School Library Journal"Morris balances farce and drama with ease, and his main characters are memorable, sympathetic, and frequently hilarious." -Horn Book Horn Book"
