Description

Piers is desperate to become a page to escape the dirty, tedious labour of his father's blacksmith shop. So when a knight arrives announcing that he's on "the quest", Piers begs to go along. Off on a series of adventures he never dreamed possible, Piers and the knight quickly run into difficulties. The knight is slain by Parsifal who is on a quest of his own. Parsifal is unlike anyone Piers has ever met. He doesn't behave in a knightly fashion at all. Slowly, Piers realizes that being a knight has nothing to do with shining armour and winning jousts. And, as their journey continues, they find that to achieve their quest they must learn more than knighthood: they must learn about themselves. It is a tour de force of humour, action, magic, and true love.show more

About Gerald Morris

Gerald Morris has written four titles in the highly-acclaimed The Squire's Tales series. In addition to writing he also serves as pastor of a church and teaches theology. As a child, Morris read voraciously, but mostly bad Western novels. Years later, when he discovered the ancient tales of King Arthur and realized what a good thing he had been missing all those years, he decided to retell those stories for the next generation. Gerald lives in Wisconsin, USA with his wife and three children.show more
