Overview

The Savage Damsel and the Dwarf (The Squire's Tales Series #3) by Gerald Morris

Her castle under siege by an evil knight who keeps beheading all her would-be rescuers, Lady Lynet realizes that the only way to get help is to get it herself. So one night she slips away and strikes out for King Arthur's court, where she hopes to find a gallant knight to vanquish the Knight of the Red Lands and free her castle. Instead, she finds an odd dwarf named Roger and a scruffy kitchen hand named Beaumains. As the three unlikely companions return to Lynet's castle, they face surprising adventures, including encounters with the uncanny Squire Terence, his master, Sir Gawain, and the majestic sorceress Morgan. And somewhere along the way, Lynet discovers that people can be much more than they seem.

About the Author

When Gerald Morris was in fifth grade he loved Greek and Norse mythology and before long was retelling the stories to his younger sister and then to neighborhood kids. He began carrying a notebook in which he kept some of the details related to the different stories. The joy he found in retelling those myths continued when he discovered other stories. According to Gerald Morris, “I never lost my love of retelling the old stories. When I found Arthurian literature, years later, I knew at once that I wanted to retell those grand tales. So I pulled out my notebook . . . I retell the tales, peopling them with characters that I at least find easier to recognize, and let the magic of the Arthurian tradition go where it will.” Gerald Morris lives in Wausau, Wisconsin, with his wife and their three children. In addition to writing he serves as a minister in a church.

Somtimes appearences can be decieving. Sometimes the guy of your dreams is not always the greatest looking guy in the room. This book gives the phrase "dont judge a book by its cover" a whole new meaning

Witty, warm, and surprising, this puts all his other novels to shame. A perfect blend of action, romance and smart humor; you will be sad to see this one end. By far my favorite of Morris' work and absolutely one of my favorite books of all time.

I read this book in one day while only stopping during classes. It had a great character devolopment without telling you anything all at once or out right. There were questions that all came together in the end and the whole book was connected. But when it was over I was sad, :( , because I just wanted to read more of this story. It was absolutely one of the best books i've ever read!!

I love this book. It is hilarious and so witty. I love Lynet. She is the perfect heroine because she is so brave and so kind. This story isn't your traditional fairy tale but that's why I like it so much. This book is definitely one of my favorites ever. So read it! You'll love it!

The Savage Damsel and the Dwarf is a great book for Tamora Pierce fans. Basically because Lynet is a very strong female character who many girls can relate to (stupid older sisters, crushes, etc.) It might be better if you know the original Sir Beaumains story beforehand.

If you liked Squire's Tale and The Squire, His Knight, and His Lady, you are going to LOVE this one. It has most of the characters from the previous books and many new and FUNNY characters. This one was REALLY GREAT. I LOVE the way that Gerald Morris writes!! I was laughing so much!! Just thinking about it makes me laugh!! The plot is really good and so is the romance.

This book, overflowing with love and respect for the legends and dripping with wit, is one of the best retellings of Arthurian legend I've ever read. Morris looks at the stories from a modern viewpoint, and puts characters with modern personalities into the middle of all the silliness we see when we read them in the originals. Look out for the Pink Knight scene, and read it with tissues in hand -- prepare to laugh until you cry.

This book is a laugh - out - loud ride through one of the most celebrated tales of the Knights of the Round Table. You don't have to be an Arthurian junkie and already familiar with the story of Beaumain the Kitchen Knight like me to enjoy this, either. In fact, all you really need is a sense of humor. The evil Knight of the Red Lands has lain seige to the Castle Perle, slaughtering every knight who comes his way, and demanding the hand of the beautiful but witless Lady Lyonessse. Her sister, Lynet, decides to take matters into her own hands and sneaks out of the castle (with the help of a suspiciously magical stranger), and heads for Camelot, befriending a dwarf named Roger along the way. At Camelot, however, Lynet refuses to reveal her name, fearing that her father's part in a rebellion against Arthur will stop the king from sending her any help. Unfortunately, no one wants to follow a nameless damsel in distress on a perilous quest, so Lynet, much to her disgust, has to settle for the kitchen boy, Beaumains. This hilarious romance about things not always being what they seem puts a refreshing spin on a beloved story and will leave you wanting to read more on Morris' Knights of the Round Table. In that case, I strongly recommend Gerald Morris' other works, about Sir Gawain and his squire Terence. All three books

This book has delightful wit and the romance and magic in it are treated in a refreshingly novel way. One is drawn into the story from the start and Lynet and Roger are an endearing heroine and hero.

This book is truly a victory put into words. I thought Mr. Morris's past Squire Terence books were great, but this one...wow! I couldn't put it down. I started reading 'The Savage Damsel and the Dwarf' to get rid of Harry Potter withdrawal, but it turned out that I now have Squire Terence withdrawal, instead. Oh well, at least I got a good read out of it. Three times.
