My boys have been having a rollicking good time with them during their nightly "reading time". The Professor had just finished up reading Mattimeo to BigBoy (who is more than capable of reading it himself, he just loves to hear the funny voices The Professor makes) and they were looking for something else to read until we checked out the next Redwall book. (I don't know what happened to our copies... need to fix that!) These Knights' Tales are funny and combine good moral tales with the humor. When asked more specifically about the humor, The Professor said, "Sometimes they are slapstick funny, sometimes they are intellectually funny and sometimes they're just plain laugh out loud funny." There you go, folks.
In fact, The Professor has enjoyed them so much that he's interested in checking out the series Mr. Morris has written for young adults called, The Squire's Tales. I'll let you know what we think of them.
