Max & the Midknights
by Lincoln Peirce
Illustrated fiction
Juvenile Fiction
* * * * Stars (Great!)

Max has no desire to be a troubadour like Uncle Budrick, but kids always end up following in the footsteps/trades of their families, so it seems inevitable. That all changes when they visit Byjovia – the kingdom where Budrick grew up and discover that the good and benevolent king has been supplanted by his awful tyrant brother, Gastley. A prophecy has foretold that Max and friends will make everything right again (if they can figure out what they need to do). A fun and funny Medieval tale. Uncle Budrick makes an excellent goose. Fans of Lincoln Peirce’s other series, Big Nate, and Wimpy Kid enthusiasts will enjoy this.
