Publishers Weekly Review

Max and the Midknights

Publishers Weekly


Max's uncle Budrick is a traveling troubadour in a 14th-century Europe-like countryside, and he's the only family Max has. When the two visit Budrick's homeland, the kingdom of Byjovia, they encounter King Gastley, who kidnaps Budrick and orders him to be his court jester. Max, who has always yearned to be a knight, must figure out how to rescue Budrick with the aid of new friends, the newly anointed Midknights. Thus begins a winding adventure filled with laughs, hijinks, and unexpected revelations, including a few about Max's identity. Peirce mixes the formats of traditional and graphic novel, conveying much of the tale with panels but including prose passages on many pages. Filled with exciting elements, including wizards, dragons, zombies, and flying rats, this mischievous medieval tale in characteristic cartoons by Big Nate creator Peirce will entertain young and adult readers with adventure and humor. Ages 8-12. (Jan.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

BookList Review

Max and the Midknights

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

Peirce delivers a medieval adventure epic with a progressive social agenda woven into the tapestry, as followers of his Big Nate character won't be surprised to hear. Though Max is apprenticed to Uncle Budrick, the troubadour, he's got no interest in singing and story-telling; he wants to be a knight. But wait a second! It turns out Max isn't a he at all but a young lady who is prophesied to save the kingdom of Byjovia from the evil usurper, King Gastley. Joined by a motley crew, including a pack of can-do kids and a bumbling wizard, she frees her captured uncle, braves a darksome forest, and rides a dragon toward the final showdown, managing to give authority a piece of her mind on unfair gender rules along the way. With tough, spunky female heroes and loads of derring-do, the concept is already a winner, but Peirce's cartooning comics sequences intercut with occasional blocks of text á la Jeff Kinney's Wimpy Kid is top notch. The charming characters, smooth visual flow. and snappy gags prove irresistible.--Jesse Karp Copyright 2018 Booklist

Max and the Midknights

School Library Journal

Gr 4-6-Set in the Middle Ages, this hilarious illustrated novel centers on Max, who is often mistaken for a boy because of her short hair and assertive personality. Max wants to be a knight, not an entertainer like her uncle. She finally gets her chance when her uncle is kidnapped by the evil and aptly named King Gastley. She and several and other courageous children dub themselves the Midknights and come to the rescue. Aided by the retired wizard Mumblin, Max and her team try to restore peace to the Kingdom of Byjovia. This is a story of magic and adventure. Comic panels with Peirce's signature black-and-white art are expertly placed amid small paragraphs of text. Readers will be drawn into this fun setting. While this novel stands alone from the "Big Nate" books, the opening page references the series, as Nate's teacher chastises him for submitting "Max and the Midknights" as his nonfiction book report. VERDICT A solid purchase for all middle grade collections, especially for fans of "Big Nate."-Marissa Lieberman, East Orange Public Library, NJ © Copyright 2018.
