Synopses & Reviews
Max takes on knight school in the hilarious sequel to the New York Times bestselling illustrated novel Max and the Midknights, from the author of the Big Nate series
"Fantastic I loved it " —Dav Pikley, New York Times bestselling author of the Dog Man series
"Max is epic fun " —Jeff Kinney, New York Times bestselling author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series
Max didn't expect knight school to be so tough. Luckily, she has her best friends — the Midknights — at her side. But when Byjovia is under attack, the Midknights will have to face beastly creatures, powerful spells, and their gretest foe yet--themselves?
Lincoln Peirce, author of the New York Times bestselling Max & the Midknights, brings more laughs, more adventures, and more silliness to Battle of the Bodkins, book two in the Max & the Midknights series.
"Like its predecessor, Peirce's sophomore graphic hybrid carries on its zippy mix of fast-paced prose and visually interesting illustrations, keeping pages flying to the happy ending with its tantalizing cliffhanger....Consistently entertaining and enjoyable." Kirkus Reviews
