Young Knights of the Round Table: The King's RansomCheryl Carpinella brings the days of Knights and Legends to life with her Middlegrade fantasy, Young Knights of the Round Table: The King’s Ransom. Follow three young boys as they go on a quest befitting of a knight with only their wits and quick thinking to achieve their goal. A man has been wrongfully accused of murder and theft. “The Wild Man” is innocent, and Gavin, the future king, Philip, an orphan, and Bryan, a future blacksmith who yearns to be a knight are determined to find the culprit and save their friend. Each must overcome their own fears as they seek out what really happened.

Ms. Carpinella brings young heroes to live in a world one can only imagine today. Each scene comes to life as these boys learn the true measure of man and the meaning of doing the honorable thing. Fast action, fabulous characters and the pageantry of days long past.

Give a reluctant reader something to become absorbed in and you have gained another lifelong reader.
