A Timeless Story of Courage and Loyalty

thekingsransomsilver_150x200I recently had the pleasure of reading The King’s Ransom (Young Knights of the Round Table) by Cheryl Carpinello. It was a wonderful story, well-written and interesting, with surprises thrown in at the end.

As you can guess from the title, the story takes place during the reign of King Arthur. The protagonists are ages eleven, thirteen, and fifteen. Their adventure lies in trying to clear the name of a friend who has been framed for murder. Each boy must face his fear and complete a quest by himself in order to save the friend.

The book is short–just over 100 pages–so it’s ideal for use in a classroom setting. It is also wonderful for kids who maybe do not yet love reading or are intimidated by longer books. The book ends nicely, but leaves itself open for many sequels where we might again enjoy the company of Gavin, Philip, and Bryan.

The content of The King’s Ransom is appropriate for children of any age.Author Picture 300dpi copy
