Book Review - Tales of a Fifth-Grade Knight!
About the Book
One day, Isaac Thompson is just your average fifth grader playing the part of a porcupine in the school play. The next, he has strayed into a mysterious subterranean realm that has been lurking beneath his school Castle Elementary and launches his quest to knighthood. When Isaac's little sister Lily goes missing from their school's creepy basement, he and his best friends Max and Emma set out in search of her. Their search takes them to the Underground, where they encounter an army of spear-wielding rats, a talking human-sized bat, and a thumb-nosed prison guard. But humans who stay in the Underground too long transform into weird, unpleasant creatures and are forced to work for the horrible Elf King. Can Isaac and his crew escape the Underground before it's too late for them to ever return home?
My Take on the Book
This was a fun story with great characters that will engage and entertain from beginning to end! My eldest daughter who is in fifth grade read this along with me and we both had a great time reading this together. The book is set up to start a series, and by the end you are going to be looking for the next book in this series. The book was light, engaging, and interactive, filled with cool riddles that will make you think, but also smile. There is great humor throughout, but also action too, and you will find that the book moves along quickly!
You will find some great interaction between the characters and the author has done a great job establishing the relationships between the characters too.
This is a great book that I believe all will enjoy!
