Sir Kevin and the Challenges by Sue Graves, Kim Blundell (Illustrations)

Sir Kevin is a knight.  Just because his teacher moved him on to save his body from more bad sword injuries is a moot point.  He's a knight and he wants a new job.  He thinks he's found the perfect one:  the King's Champion Knight.

Publishing Push, Farthing Dove Press and the author kindly sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  You can find a copy on Amazon now.

While Sir Kevin is not the best knight, he's willing to go second and take all the challenges.  He bargains his survival on the challenges so he's smarter than he looks.  The only problem is the other knight is better.  When they both finish the quest, it's up to the King to determine the final test.  He has no ideas, so he decides to take a bath.

The final quest is silly but it's believable.  Sir Kevin makes you smile.  This written for younger readers and I think they'll like the mellow story.  Most of these characters could use a little sympathy.  If you have an adventurer in your life, this is a good read for them.
