New Series from the Creator of Big Nate

Today I have a new series from the creator of Big Nate.  My boys devoured all the Big Nate books when they were younger, so I was so excited to see a new series from this very clever author/illustrator.  He has certainly added another quick-witted entrant into the illustrated novel category!

Title: Max & the Midknights new series from the creator of big nate max and the midnights

Author: Lincoln Peirce

Target: Grades 3-6

Series: Not at this time

What this book is about:

Max is an apprentice troubadour, but what Max really wants to be is a knight.  When Max’s Uncle Budrick is taken away by the evil King Gastley, Max feels compelled to rescue him.  Max and friends dub themselves the Midknights, and they along with a washed-up wizard and a goose must now save the kingdom of Byjovia from the cruel reign of King Gastley.  Good luck with that!

Why I love this book:

  • I have always been a huge fan of the Big Nate series, so this new offering by the same author was a must read.  There is a big twist and the top of the book, which I do not want to give away, but I loved it.  As always, there is a great mix of text and illustrations and plenty of humor to lure in the most reluctant reader.
  • This story is full of twists and turns which will keep readers engaged with the adventure.  Lots of action means there is never a dull moment as our gang encounters witches, dragons, and magic.

Who this book is for:

Great for fans of illustrated novels.  Both boys and girls will love this one.

Final thoughts:

Lincoln Pierce does it again.  This is a fun illustrated novel that takes kids on a medieval adventure with plenty of humor and action.
