This graphic novel had such great illustrations! Artie is a new student, and new to the neighborhood. Despite his wishes to fit in, Artie does just the opposite. He becomes the King of all the students after opening his locker that granted him the title, and now he has to deal with an evil administrator and a horde of bullies that are illustrated to look terrifying. In the end, he wins an epic dodgeball game against the horde, and all order is restored.

Because the book is primarily photos and some small dialogue or though bubbles, kids of almost any age would be able to read this and enjoy it! Again, another great example of overcoming obstacles and finding strength. ( )

Artie's first day at Camelot Middle School is off to a bad start--he missed the bus, ran afoul of the bullies, was assigned a bum locker that hasn't opened in years, and may have led his new friends to believe he was some kind of dodgeball legend. So when the bullies challenge Artie and his friends to a do-or-die dodgeball game, Artie's the only one who knows they're doomed... or are they?

The writing is maybe a little clunky at the beginning, but it smooths out fairly quickly. The Camelot allusions are thick on the ground (characters Arthur and Gwen, and the teacher Mr. Merlyn) but the target audience for this book isn't likely to find any problem with that. The cartoony art style and color palette are friendly, fun, and welcoming. My only hesitation with this is that these are middle-school students, but the book will appeal most to upper-elementary kids--and even that's not really a gripe. The ending is predictable (how do you think the dodgeball game will play out?), but it's sweet and fun all the same. ( )

Summary: This story is about a kid named Artie who was nervous about his first day at a new school. He was really good at dodgeball and he wanted to use it to beat his bully.

Personal Reaction: I thought this book was really cute, and I think it would be a great read for a class because kids can relate to this story.

Classroom Extension: You could use this as a long read in class. It could also be used to do neat little in class activities like playing dodgeball or making stories of their own.

Knight of the lunch table was a really good book! ( )

Summary: This is about a kid who is nervous about his first day of school. He claims he is the best dodgeball player and plays against the bully and ended up defeating him.

Reflection: I usually do not read graphic novels but this one was very cute. I did not get bored of it at all.

Classroom Extension:
1. Have the kids make their own comic strip on bullies and how they would handle the situation.
2. Play dodgeball for P.E.

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.

In this funny new series from Eisner Award nominee Frank Cammuso, the Arthurian legend is reborn--in a funny, average-joe, middle-school boy and his pals.

Artie King just wants to ease into life at Camelot Middle School. He’s got new lunch buddies, Percy and Wayne, and his science teacher, Mr. Merlyn, is pretty cool. But then there’s scary Principal Dagger and big bad Joe and The Horde, a bunch of brawny bullies who rule the school.

Arnie opens a mysterious locker at Camelot Middle School and ends up in a dodgeball game with the school bullies.
