Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Miranda McClain
The pages in Roland's class are bursting with anticipation from the news that there is going to be an actual tournament complete with jousting and the winner will be proclaimed the next king. Roland and his friends Humphrey and Morris are almost bursting when they learn the pages are to be invited and work night and day to prepare, but in the meantime Sir Gallawood brings Roland's friend Jenny from his village, to the castle and Roland has a bad feeling that something bad may happen at the joust. It doesn't help that his rival, Hector, is strutting around acting smug as if he knows something. The day of the joust the air is crackling with excitement as the knights prepare to show what they are made of. Roland and his friends are caught up in the frenzy but soon learn that there is more than glory to the action as their teacher and role model, Sir Lucas, is grievously wounded. Then to make matters worse Roland learns that he too must take part and engage the fearsome Little Douglas in battle. At the end of the day Roland is triumphant but stiff, sore, and concerned for his teacher. It seems there are many life lessons still to be learned by this knight in training and young readers will enjoy learning them right along with him. Reviewer: Miranda McClain
