The legend of King Arthur is a very appealing one, and lots of people attempt to cash in on it. Some do it better than others. This is the case of the latter instance. Sir Givret is one of the lesser known knights of the Round Table. He is smart, thoughtful, and short. He helps out a lot of people while fulfilling his quest as a new knight. Lots of humor and adventure. Easy to read. My biggest issue with this book is that it mixes even more unknowns into the Arthurian legend than already exist and I think it would be really hard for a kid to tell which is which. I think it is important to keep the legend more "pure" for lack of a better word.
