This book is absolutely HILARIOUS!!!

I was first introduced to this book through my brother, who was reading aloud to my mother. I stopped when I heard something about 'Sir Hatubris' (I don't think I spelled that right) and was laughing after only a few sentences.

Basically, this boy named Terence who has lived with a hermit his whole life meets Gawain, who is on his way to King Arthur's court to try and become a knight. Terence ends up becoming his squire through an odd little twist and off they go. Of course, since Terence has been raised in the middle of the woods by a hermit, he needs some training, and things just get funnier and funnier . . . until something serious is thrown in. The very end is much more serious than the beginning, but it makes the transition well and keeps the humor through until the very end.

It's absolutely excellent!

(Many of the Sequels are, as well. I would especially recommend THE LIONESS AND HER KNIGHT, though you would probably need to read THE SAVAGE DAMSEL AND THE DWARF first...)
