Kids in 3rd-7th grade would enjoy this book. The Badger Knight is a fictional book about a boy named Adrian, and he's twelve years old. It takes place in 1346 which is a long time ago. In this story he practices archery and goes off to battle. His family doesn't really want him to do that. His dad only wants him to go a little bit. He doesn't really get along well with Good Aunt because she says bad things about him. So he deals with some conflict with his her. Adrian is special because he's an albino and he's also extra smart and brave. While Adrian is off in battle, one of his friends who is also a soldier dies but his other good friend survives. Even though it had this bit of sadness in it, I was really happy with how the book ends. My favorite part is when Adrian is told by two different people that he is a master archer. Towards the end, there is a chapter called 'In Which Hugh and Bess Find Each Other... and There is Kissing.' I thought that was kind of funny. The chapter titles were funny, too, and they made the book extra special. I would recommend this book and give it 4 stars. I think the book would be enjoyed by kids in 3rd-7th grades.

I am a huge fan of medieval historical fiction and of author Karen Cushman, so this sounded like a story that was right up my alley. I read the description of this book and was curious if it would be true to the era without all the "fairytale fluff." It did not disappoint! I felt like I was right there with Adrian throuhout his journey and his very real struggles. My only complaint is that I wanted to know more of his story.
