Possibly the funniest of the series, especially with Beaufils' charming innocence. He and Terence are the two with the most insight into human character.

My favorite of the series so far. Morris does more than tell the legends in a fluent narrative. In this book he once again weaves a post-modern thread about gender, religion and desire through the traditional story. Beaufils, the main character is an easy-going young man searching for something, maybe his father, maybe his real name. He signs on with each knight he meets and gets swept along in their adventures. My 9 year old son and I have been reading the entire series. We enjoyed trying to guess who his father was, and Morris kept us guessing right to the end. If you have the time, I recommend reading the series from the beginning. I am not sure it would be as good without that background.

Morris takes on the quest for the Holy Grail and other Arthurian stories with his usual gentle humor and preference for reason over violence.
