The Lioness Her Knight

“Oh, yes, your ring,” Luneta said. She pressed it into Laudine's hand. “Put it away somewhere, why don't you?” Laudine ignored her, looking at Ywain's silent form. “And I thank you, Sir Knight.” Ywain inclined his head slightly but did ...

“Adventure, magic, love, and knights of the realm collide in this delightfully witty tale . . . this romp through the land of King Arthur is a gem.” —School Library Journal Luneta is tired of living in dull Orkney with her mother and father (who happens to be the most boring knight of King Arthur’s Round Table). She prides herself on always getting what she wants, so when the opportunity presents itself, she jumps at the chance to stay at a family friend’s castle near Camelot. Her handsome cousin, Sir Ywain—a young knight seeking adventure—arrives just in time to escort her to King Arthur’s court. Along the way they pick up a knight-turned-fool named Rhience, whose wit and audacity set many a puffed-up personality in its place. Before arriving at Lady Laudine’s castle, the trio stops at Camelot, where they hear the story of the Storm Stone, a magical object deep in the forest that soon sweeps everyone into a web of love, betrayal, and more than a bit of magic. Filled with broken promises, powerful enchantresses, unconventional sword fights, fierce and friendly lionesses, mysterious knights, and damsels in and out of distress, The Lioness and Her Knight proves itself as witty and adventuresome as the rest of Gerald Morris’s tales from King Arthur’s court. “Morris balances farce and drama with ease, and his main characters are memorable, sympathetic, and frequently hilarious.” —The Horn Book “Clever, funny and wise . . . Once again, Morris brilliantly re-animates an old story, keeping readers engaged while gently, genially urging them to ruminate over the truths at its heart.” —Kirkus Reviews

The author of The Lioness and Her Knight “continues his intelligent retellings of Arthurian legends with a tale of multiple quests” (Kirkus Reviews). 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. “A heartwarming and thought-provoking tale, this story is sure to entertain readers.” —School Library Journal “Morris’ retellings of Arthurian legends—and others from English lore, mostly medieval—never disappoint.” —Booklist “Maintains the same comfortable balance of epic adventure, earnest idealism, and gentle humor that has made the series so successful in bringing Arthurian legends to young readers.” —The Horn Book
