The Quest of the Fair Unknown (Squire's Tales)

The Quest of the Fair Unknown (Squire's Tales) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On her deathbed, Beaufils's mother leaves him with a quest and a

clue: find your father, a knight of King Arthur's court. So Beaufils

leaves the isolated forest of his youth and quickly discovers that he

has much to learn about the world beyond his experience. Beaufils's

innocence never fails to make his companions grin, but his fresh outlook

on the world's peculiarities turns out to be more of a gift than

a curse as they encounter unexpected friends and foes.

With his constant stream of wise fools and foolish wise men, holy

hermits and others of rather less holiness, plotting magicians and

conniving Ladies, Gerald Morris infuses these medieval stories with a

riotous humor all his own.

Synopsis:

The eighth title in The Squires Tales series takes on the legendary story of the Holy Grail.

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.
