Time Warp Trio, vol. 1

Joe and his friends, Fred and Sam, never intended to leave Joe’s birthday party. Or to end up in Arthurian England. They just weren’t careful to avoid idle wishes around his Uncle Joe’s present. And everybody knows idle wishes are dangerous . . . don’t they?

I have to admit, I only picked Knights of the Kitchen Table up because I’d read Jon Scieszka’s story in The Chronicles of Harris Burdick and enjoyed it. I’m glad I did. I’d walked past it and the many other volumes in Scieszka’s “The Time Warp Trio” series innumerable times, thinking the spines looked too dull to bother with them. The spines lie. Knights of the Kitchen Table is distinctly written for the elementary-school-boy demographic, but would be an enjoyable, quick read for anyone–it’s only around 50 pages long, and the print’s fairly big. I recommend that you check it out and see for yourself.
