Summary
Join Max's quest to become a knight in this laugh-filled, New York Times bestselling adventure from the author of the Big Nate series!

"Max is epic fun!" --JEFF KINNEY, New York Times bestselling author of the DIARY OF A WIMPY KID series

Max wants to be a knight! Too bad that dream is about as likely as finding a friendly dragon. But when Max's uncle Budrick is kidnapped by the cruel King Gastley, Max has to act...and fast! Joined by a band of brave adventurers--the Midknights--Max sets out on a thrilling quest: to save Uncle Budrick and restore the realm of Byjovia to its former high spirits!

Magic and (mis)adventures abound in this hilarious illustrated novel from the New York Times bestselling creator of the Big Nate series, Lincoln Peirce.

"Fantastic! I loved it!" --DAV PILKEY, New York Times bestselling author of the DOG MAN series
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Peirce delivers a medieval adventure epic with a progressive social agenda woven into the tapestry, as followers of his Big Nate character won't be surprised to hear. Though Max is apprenticed to Uncle Budrick, the troubadour, he's got no interest in singing and story-telling; he wants to be a knight. But wait a second! It turns out Max isn't a he at all but a young lady who is prophesied to save the kingdom of Byjovia from the evil usurper, King Gastley. Joined by a motley crew, including a pack of can-do kids and a bumbling wizard, she frees her captured uncle, braves a darksome forest, and rides a dragon toward the final showdown, managing to give authority a piece of her mind on unfair gender rules along the way. With tough, spunky female heroes and loads of derring-do, the concept is already a winner, but Peirce's cartooning comics sequences intercut with occasional blocks of text á la Jeff Kinney's Wimpy Kid is top notch. The charming characters, smooth visual flow. and snappy gags prove irresistible.--Jesse Karp Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Max's uncle Budrick is a traveling troubadour in a 14th-century Europe-like countryside, and he's the only family Max has. When the two visit Budrick's homeland, the kingdom of Byjovia, they encounter King Gastley, who kidnaps Budrick and orders him to be his court jester. Max, who has always yearned to be a knight, must figure out how to rescue Budrick with the aid of new friends, the newly anointed Midknights. Thus begins a winding adventure filled with laughs, hijinks, and unexpected revelations, including a few about Max's identity. Peirce mixes the formats of traditional and graphic novel, conveying much of the tale with panels but including prose passages on many pages. Filled with exciting elements, including wizards, dragons, zombies, and flying rats, this mischievous medieval tale in characteristic cartoons by Big Nate creator Peirce will entertain young and adult readers with adventure and humor.
