Artie learns that ruling the school has its consequences. Kidzworld reviews Knights of the Lunch Table, an exciting graphic novel by Frank Cammuso.

Bad Day

On Artie’s first day at Camelot Middle School, nothing goes smoothly. He misses the school bus; he accidentally starts a rumor that he was a dodgeball legend at his old school (a complete lie!); and The Horde, a group of bullies, steal his lunch[/kwlink] (which turns out to be a soap-sud sandwich, complements of his annoying sister). When Artie thinks his day can’t get any worse, he’s assigned to locker 001XCL—a locker that’s said to be cursed. And no student has ever managed to open it.

The Cursed Locker

According to Artie’s new friends, anyone who manages to open locker 001XCL will rule the school. When Joe Roman, the biggest bully in school, finds out that the locker belongs to Artie, he’s determined to open it for himself. But no matter how many times Joe pulls, pushes, bangs or yanks, the locker door just won’t budge.


The Dodgeball Challenge

Artie tries next. And in front of a mob of students, the locker opens. Joe is fuming mad. “Nobody messes with Joe Roman.” The bully challenges Artie and his friends to a dodgeball game to settle the score. And immediately Artie’s friends agree. After all, they think Artie is a dodgeball legend! With the help of his friends, his science teacher and Percy’s missing tarantula, Artie finds his courage. He faces Joe Roman and his band of bullies head on. But will he walk away with a victory? Or will he be pummeled to the ground by speeding dodgeballs?


The Bottom Line

The Knights of the Lunch Table is a modern spin on King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. With its clever twists and fantastic dialogue, this graphic novel feels like a full length young-adult book. And the bold, colorful pictures make the story even more exciting. If you like dodgeball, tarantulas, magic lockers, or the tale of King Arthur, you’ll definitely get a kick out of this fun graphic novel.


Knights of the Lunch Table Rating: 5

    I think it should be lowered to eighteen. It's only fair because if you're able to join the military and risk your life at the age of eighteen then you should be able to drink a #### here and there. Unless they push the recruitment age up to twenty-one then I'll agree that is what the drinking age should be.

    I think the drinking age should be 70!  There are way too many hooligans running around these days!

    For those of you who didn't know the drinking is actually twenty-one . In my opinion the drinking age should not be lowered .  For one , if even young adults do rash things while drinking like doing what I call 'getting jiggy' . Let's not talk about it . Now it might not be their choice to do those things because people get very loopy and unpredictable after drinking .    In my opion drinking shouldn't even be allowed ! It's not like it would help banning it though . Some things are illegal for a reason yet some people feel the need to break the law .  I'm sorry about my ranting . XD What do you think  ? Should the drinking age be lowered ? Or no ?  :)
