Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Piers (or Pierre, as he wants to be called) is desperate to escape the dirty, tedious labor of his fathers blacksmith shop. So when a knight shows up and says hes on “the quest,” Piers begs to go along. Soon he is off on a series of adventures he never dreamed possible. However, Pierss knight quickly runs into some difficulties and is slain by an odd character named Parsifal, who is on his own quest. Piers has no other choice but to join him.

Parsifal is unlike anyone Piers has ever met and doesnt behave “knightly” at all. As their journey continues, Piers and Parsifal are drawn into the Quest for the elusive Holy Grail, and slowly, as the Quest continues, Piers begins to realize what being a knight really means.

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.
