A delightful modern retelling of the Arthurian story, and a nod to Shakespeare :) ( )

Booktalk: It’s Artie’s first day in his new school and already he has: accidentally tripped the principal, angered Joe Roman the meanest, biggest boy in school, and lied to his new friends about being the all-state dodgeball champion at his old school. On top of all that, Artie was able to open the magical locker, a locker that no one has been able to open in YEARS, not even the principal nor Joe Roman the meanest, biggest boy in the school. The legend is that the person who opens the magical locker rules the school and Joe Roman is not happy because until Artie opened the locker, Joe was the one who ruled the school. Joe demands a do-or-die dodgeball game against Artie and the winner of the game will rule the school. Too bad Artie lied about being a dodgeball champion. He’s never going to beat big mean Joe…unless maybe that magical locker might be able to help??? Find out who really rules the school in KNIGHTS OF THE LUNCH TABLE.

Artie King is the new student at Camelot Middle School, and his first day is not going well. Artie misses the bus, angers the principal, and is forced to take a pop quiz. To make matters worse, he foolishly brags to the Horde, a group of dodgeball champions, that he too excels at the sport. After opening a mysterious rusted-shut locker, Artie is challenged to a match by the Horde, eager to maintain their social status at Camelot Middle. This modern middle school version of the Arthurian legend is presented as a graphic novel, complete with bright, action packed illustrations and contemporary language. Readers will undoubtedly enjoy the lively cartoons and rejoice in Artie’s triumph over the Horde. Beginning and middle readers will love this graphic novel, and will certainly be looking forward to the next book in the series. ( )

I think kids will really enjoy this book. For adults, this is going to be like cotton candy, a nostalgic fluffy treat. Cammuso has done a good job of writing for kids while avoiding the pitfalls of trying to be ‘hip’ or ‘up-to-date’ through the use of slang or clothing styles.
