Max wants to be a knight! Too bad that dream is about as likely as finding a friendly dragon. But when Max's uncle Budrick is kidnapped by the cruel King Gastley, Max has to act...and fast! Joined by a band of brave adventurers--the Midknights--Max sets out on a thrilling quest: to save Uncle Budrick and restore the realm of Byjovia to its former high spirits!
Magic and (mis)adventures abound in this hilarious illustrated novel from the New York Times bestselling creator of the Big Nate series, Lincoln Peirce.
"Fantastic! I loved it!" --DAV PILKEY, New York Times bestselling author of the DOG MAN series
Max's uncle Budrick is a traveling troubadour in a 14th-century Europe-like countryside, and he's the only family Max has. When the two visit Budrick's homeland, the kingdom of Byjovia, they encounter King Gastley, who kidnaps Budrick and orders him to be his court jester. Max, who has always yearned to be a knight, must figure out how to rescue Budrick with the aid of new friends, the newly anointed Midknights. Thus begins a winding adventure filled with laughs, hijinks, and unexpected revelations, including a few about Max's identity. Peirce mixes the formats of traditional and graphic novel, conveying much of the tale with panels but including prose passages on many pages. Filled with exciting elements, including wizards, dragons, zombies, and flying rats, this mischievous medieval tale in characteristic cartoons by Big Nate creator Peirce will entertain young and adult readers with adventure and humor. Ages 8 12.
Love it.Keep writing NEVER STOP!!!!!!
So nice 😊
I like that The author wrote about a girl. A man writing about a girl is very uncommon in the book world. It was kind of funny and unexpected how that just popped up. It was funny to see the other was a bit surprised that she was a girl. It even surprise me. I expected the main character to be a boy but it wasn’t. That was very nice to see this book. It is far much better than big Nate. I love it 🥰 thank you for making this!
I wish book three would come out fast!
