With his trademark comic book-style illustrations, Lincoln Peirce brings epic adventure, riotous fun and medieval silliness in Max and the Midknights: Battle of the Bodkins, book two in the Max & the Midknights series.

Max is epic fun!
Fantastic! I loved it!
Peirce’s pedigree as a cartoonist is indisputable... his new characters are drawn with a flamboyance and confidence that is rare for series openers. Max’s quest gallops along at speed and the jokes, most of which are visual, will keep readers chortling through the pages in anticipation for the next gag. Max and the Midknights is funny, fast and full of mischievous villains and courageous victors.
