Overview

Lord Tempesto is a snake in every sense. As a human, he is slimy, deceitful, and manipulative, but when he’s denied what he wants, he transforms into a gigantic, powerful snake. He wants nothing more than to rule the kingdom himself, and he’ll stop at nothing to get what he wants.

Princess Melina is meant to rule her father’s kingdom someday, but she doesn’t want to do it alone. However, the search for a noble suitor brings a monster to the palace gates. When monster Lord Tempesto captures her and threatens to devour her beloved kingdom if she doesn’t marry him, she has no choice but to submit to the repulsive monster’s demands.

James, the son of a knight, hears about Princess Melina’s plight and sets out on the long journey to rescue her. But his own skills aren’t enough to win the fight against such a ruthless, powerful monster, and it takes teamwork between the captive and her rescuer to save the kingdom from the monster for good.

The Knight in Battered Armor shows children of all ages the importance of doing what is right no matter what and not being afraid to protect what is most important.

Great book for your older elementary readers. It has a great theme within it of doing what's right no matter the cost or what others say. Cute, easy to read, just enough suspense to keep kids enthralled. Definitely, a must read. I really appreciated what great lessons it was teaching. Plus boys really love to read about knights and battles! I have three boys in the age range of 10-12 so this was a hit at our house! I received an ecopy of this book so I read it out loud to my kids. Both girls and boys sat enthralled and did not want me to stop reading when anyone needed a break. I recommend this book to anyone who wants good reading for their children. It has a great lesson to teach so it's not just fluffed to keep them entertained while destroying brain cells. Even my younger children enjoyed the read. There are a few bits which could be considered scary. My kids love this type of knight off to rescue though. Our little guy age two sat in a lap and was not scared if that's helpful to know. All listened spellbound though. I like to think it's my reading voice that keeps them listening but the storyline is probably the real winner!

The Knight in Battered Armor was a actually a very cute story. The characters were all very memorable and I thought that the writing style was very fit for a younger audience. The only complaint I have about it is the rather large words used throughout the story. As an older reader, I personally didn't mind them, but I kept on thinking that no young child would be able to understand some of the words. As I said above, it was a cute story with some very good themes that I think are good for young readers to learn about, but the bigger words used throughout didn't seem to fit a children's book. **I received a complementary copy of this book via JustRead publicity tours.

This is a "totes cutez" read! I loved the artwork/pictures throughout, and the characters were charming -- and not just the knight, though he is my favorite. ;) Middle-grade readers will enjoy working through the book, and earlier readers will enjoy the pictures as they work toward getting the text. This is one parents would even enjoy reading -- and rereading -- to their children. A book for the whole family! Much like anyone can enjoy Toy Story, the whole family will enjoy this one and get something a little different out of it.

I thought this book was a cute children's story. It wasn't simply your typical knight and princess rescue tale. I really enjoyed that the characters displayed a lot of admirable qualities that made this story more unique and meaningful than the typical fairy tale rescue. Themes of courage, self sacrifice, loyalty and teamwork were very visible in The Knight in Battered Armor. The bright illustrations and an quirky names of the characters were another feature of this book that made it really memorable. An enjoyable kids book that you might want to check out for young readers.

The Knight in Battered armor is an early chapter book with plenty of pictures to still feel like a picture book. It reads like a fairy tale, with the valiant knight going after the ferocious monster to save the princess. What was unique though, was that it was his heart, humility and selflessness that set him apart from the others and not simply his sword-fighting skills. He didn't save the princess to prove his own superiority but his honest concern for the princess' well-being. I would recommend this as a great read-aloud story for bedtime. I'm always a fan of reading time with kids and believe it's a great way to get them excited about reading on their own. Reading levels can be difficult to attach to books simply because different areas have different ways to classify them, and kids of different ages can be at very different levels. There were certainly a few words that could be trickier for young readers but overall it didn't appear to be a very difficult read. I thought it was an engaging story and one I believe kids will enjoy. *I received a copy of this book through JustRead Tours. Thoughts and opinions expressed are mine alone.

Princess Melina is kind and compassionate, her parents are wise and want to help her find a suitable husband. Then one of Melina's would-be suitors kidnaps her and locks her up in a tower. Many knights attempt to rescue her, but only one has the courage to face the beast holding her captive. Though battered and well-worn on the outside, it is up to the courageous man inside the distressed armor to free Princess Melina. Suitable for young readers, whether to be read aloud to young ones or read by an early reader of chapter book skill level. This is a charming fairy tale with a twist. 50-some full-color illustrated pages compliment the tale, with cartoon-style illustrations in appropriate color schemes. It reminded me a little of the stained glass style illustrations in the opening scenes of Disney's original Beauty and the Beast. Strong themes of courage, character, and wisdom run through this book, as well as compassion, with symbolism throughout. I really liked how the story emphasized strong character, and doing the right thing as well as how the Princess didn't just sit on the sideline and wait to be rescued. A brand new fairy tale with a twist, great to share with the young girls in your life.
