The Squire, His Knight, & His Lady
Squire Terence and Sir Gawain are off questing again, but this time their journey is overshadowed by their ultimate destination: Gawain is to meet up with the Green Knight in a contest that could easily lead to Gawain's death. Along the way the two have a slew of hair-raising adventures and encounter the usual odd assortment of characters, including the plucky Lady Eileen. Sparks instantly fly between Terence and Eileen as she joins the squire and his knight on their travels. As they weave their way between the world of men and the Other World, Gawain and Terence discover much about themselves. The Squire, His Knight, and His Lady is the sequel to Gerald Morris's debut book, The Squire's Tale, about which the Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books raved, "This Arthurian road trip will have readers wondering why there aren't more books like this one and hoping that Morris will do it again." And so he has.

This books awesome!
Funny, thoughtful, and full of moral lessons, The Squire, His Knight, & His Lady will delight both old and young. I read this with my 9 year old son. Many times we had to stop reading because we were laughing so hard. It is the core moral lesson of the story, though, that I proudly recommend this story. Be ready to be surprised and enchanted with Gerald Morris' tale of redemption.
