This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Kaye is an ordinary boy who likes exploring and dreams of being a legendary knight like his father. But good knights are hard to find in Knox since the king died. When the new queen knights Kaye for doing a brave deed to help another person, he gets his wish a lot sooner than he expected. Being a knight is a dream come true for Kaye...but he's got a lot to live up to. Can he hold his own against all the other knights who hate him? Can he outwit the terrible Sir Melchor and defeat him in the deeds-at-arms competition that all knights in the kingdom must participate in? Can he help the queen save her kingdom...even a little bit?
Normally not a fan of adventure books, my daughter really enjoyed this book! She loved the various adventures and the castle setting. The inclusion of horses and archery and Kaye's creative use of knitting and the friendship formed made for great reading! She looks forward to the second book in the series.
