Knights vs. Monsters
Award-winning creator Matt Phelan’s Knights vs. Monsters is a highly illustrated, fast-paced adventure full of uproarious knightly hijinks, surprising secrets, and terrifying monsters. When a magical boat sweeps the Knights of the Round Table off to Scotland, they take on the evil Queen Morgause and her horde of monsters. With art on nearly every page, including an epic fight scene depicted in several graphic-novel style spreads, this engaging story is ideal for reluctant readers, aspiring knights, and fans of Gordon Korman’s Masterminds. In a starred review, Kirkus called the first book in the series, “Epic—in plot, not in length . . . and as wise and wonderful as Gerald Morris’s Arthurian exploits.”
“A Note from Queen Morgause” with further information on Scottish tradition and legend. Black-and-white illustrations.
