It got off to a slow start, but by the ending I really enjoyed this retelling of a classic Arthurian tale. The only weak spot was the rather slapstick combat in one prolonged fight sequence, which gave it an odd tone for several pages, but the overall story was handled remarkably well.
The original tale, which involved teaching an overconfident and self-involved knight a needed lesson, is changed only a bit in the retelling, and in ways that will make it more comprehensible for young readers.
