Knights of the Kitchen Table

Knights of the Kitchen Table

Series: Time Warp Trio (Book #1)
by Jon Scieszka Illustrated by Lane Smith

Joe's been caught up in a book before, but this is ridiculous! Joe's Book, a gift from his magician uncle, doesn't just tell stories, it zaps Joe and his friends Sam and Fred right into the middle of them. And when these thoroughly modern kids meet King Arthur and become Knights of the Round Table, the result can only be thoroughly amusing mayhem.

"[The Time Warp Trio's] tongue-in-cheek humor, laced with understatement and wordplay, makes for laugh-out-loud reading. — School Library Journal
