Description

Renowned for their courage, their chivalry, and their ability to fight mythical creatures, the Knights of the Round Table face a new band of dangerous opponents—MONSTERS! 

In the rip-roaring sequel to Matt Phelan’s acclaimed Knights vs. Dinosaurs, four daring knights and one intrepid archer face off against legendary monsters. This heavily illustrated middle grade adventure is a hilarious tale of derring-do that is perfect for reluctant readers and fans of The Terrible Two and The Wild Robot.

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.

Praise for Knights vs. Monsters

“Chock-full of briskly paced action and glints of humor. . . . Young heroes both male and female rout many excellent monsters—what’s not to like?” — Kirkus Reviews

“Humor and high-jinks are in plentiful supply . . . the story’s real joy is found in the characters’ interactions and impossible plot turns. . . . Black-and-white illustrations and comics panels ramp up the madcap action and laughs. . . . Another rampaging success.” — Booklist
