School Library Journal - 06/01/2018 Gr 3–6—The Knights of the Round Table share a secret: they spend most of their time fighting with each other for the fun of it because the kingdom has too few dragons to battle. To impress King Arthur, Sir Eric and the other knights embellish their tales. Merlin knows that the elaborate tales are too incredible, so he dangles a dangerous adventure in front of the knights. Of course, they take the bait. At the break of dawn, Sir Eric embarks on an escapade to face the most fearsome creature of all: the "Terrible Lizard." Not to be outdone, Sir Hector, Bors, and the Black Knight join the odyssey. This rollicking story is suspenseful and silly. The black-and-white pencil drawings add to the excitement and include double-page, comic book-like spreads that even reluctant readers will enjoy. VERDICT Themes of teamwork and feminism emerge, making this an excellent choice for all readers.—Annette Herbert, F.E.
