Knights Of The Lunch Table: The Dragon Players Graphic Novel Review

Author: Frank Cammuso
Series: Knights Of The Lunch Table
Ages: 9-12


The Dragon Players is the second book in author/cartoonist Frank Cammuso's Knights of the Lunch Table series. Set to launch this September, this is a great sequel to the first book in the series, which is called The Dodgeball Chronicles. With its brightly colored cover and several pages of full-colour cartoons at the front of the book (the rest are drawn in black and white), we could tell this would be a fun read from the very start.


The Story

This book stars Artie King, who, like the rest of the elements in the book represents some character or situation from the Legends of King Arthur – only schoolyard-style. In the last book Artie opened the eternally stuck but magic locker (his sword in the stone) and in this book, his science teacher Mr. Merlyn returns to help him and his pals with the school's Dragon Days robot contest.


Facing the gang again are the school bullies (known as the "Horde"), which forces Artie to turn for help to Evo, a former winner of the contest. It's another fast-paced tale where Artie overcomes adversity through ingenuity and a little help from others.


The Art

Frank Cammuso is a really good cartoonist. The art is active, entertaining and a lot of times just plain funny!

I am very feminist and if you read my post you'll see how I feel So I read the post and it seems that it has almost nothing to say about ego. These are the only things I, at least, can get out of your post about feelings: ​1. The question: Do beauty pageants objectify women? 2. Your description of what way you are using the word 'objectify': Degrading a person to seem like a mere object ​3. Wanting to know everybody's opinion ​ ​That's it. I'm probably the only one here to bring up the subject about 'egoistical'. And since you are a feminist I will plainly assume that you agree with me on these girls in the pageant being of larger ego than usual. But your comment is slightly confusing and therefore I have no idea if you are angry with me or if you are telling me that you are agreeing with me saying that you feel that pageant girls are egoistic or something. But I know one thing: You feel badly about these pageants. If you would detail your comment more I would be relatively satisfied and probably even have a full answer. On the other hand, thank you for recognizing my comment, I was glad to hear your reaction, even though it was somewhat confusing, and I hope you have a good continuation of the day, m'am. :) No no, sorry about it confusing. What I meant was I disagreed with the egotistical part and wanted you to know I was a pageant girl and I wasn't that way, however I was too lazy to retype how I felt about this subject so I directed you to my post before cx Sorry. My post is in favor of beauty pageants, I've realized lately that I can't portray what I'm trying to say in a non-confusing way to other people so I guess I'll try and clarify. I feel beauty pageants are helpful to the girls in them, I had been bullied harshly but my mother said everytime I was on stage I seemed to have some confidence which I didnt have any other time. All Im really saying is people judge pageants too quickly without really realizing the deeper meaning behind them, I was just saying it from a beauty pageant girls mind

    In general, do you think a country would be run better with a democracy or with someone making all the decisions?  Sorry should have made that more clearer :blush
