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

You can go fly a kite!I do not support gays.If some girls want to walk on the street with literally no clothes on, is that fine too?Thats their way of expressing themselves!But then, they are lost anyway, so who cares?It doesnt matter if you are gay or not, if you are not a Christian! THE BIBLE:Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the ######## immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.SO FLY A KITE if you think you can be a gay christian. Hmm.....I can't deny what you said....But what I can say is that you shouldn't be that religious! Gays have rights too! They're humans too!

SO quit your lifestyle and get saved, gays! P.S:Do not bring up the fact that the old testament says u cant have tattoos. It also talks about animal sacrifices. And no christian does that.
