Max and the Midknights by Lincoln Peirce - ESSENTIAL

Max and the Midknights by Lincoln Peirce, 280 pages.  GRAPHIC NOVEL  Crown Books (Random House), 2019.  $14.  Content: G  



Max has always wanted to be a knight, but is an apprenticed troubadour.  When Max’s uncle is taken by an evil king, Max does everything she can to save him.  In the meantime, she finds herself battling an evil sorceress and looking for the rightful king.  Along the way she makes new friends and learns to stand up for what she wants.  

I loved this book.  I was laughing and cheering for the characters throughout.  The story line is well-paced and the humorous dialogue was laugh-out loud, but not ridiculous.  I loved Max’s bravery and the good moral that the story had about family and standing up for what is right.  Readers who enjoy Dog Man or Big Nate will love this book.  I hope this is a new series.  

Reviewer, C. Peterson
