Description

Why is it, Terence wondered, that the things you know most surely are always the things you can't demonstrate to any one else?

And why is it, after all of these years, that Terence is still just a squire, offering advice on how best to scrub the rust spots from armor? But Squire Terence has more to worry about than his place on the social scale. For all the peace and prosperity that has made England famous across Europe, Terence is uneasy. After nearly six months without contact with the World of the Faeries – not even from his old friend, the mischievous sprite Robin – Terence is sure something is rotten in King Arthur's court.

        November 1, 2009
        Gr 6-9-Terence is still a squire in the service of Sir Gawain despite being older and more experienced than any of his fellow squires. However, he is more concerned about his inability to contact anyone in Avalon, the World of the Faeries and home of his father, Ganscotter. In addition, there is the distraction of a visit from Alexander, the ruler of the Byzantine Empire and a great admirer of Arthur, and his retinue, including his younger brother Cligés, who has become obsessed with the French traditions of courtly love. And there is another visitor at court, charming Mordred, whom Terence suspects to be more than he seems. While the story has much of Morris's trademark humor and rollicking adventure, it also includes some tragic happenings, such as the deaths of numerous innocent people. As with other books in the series, Morris misses no opportunity to poke fun at knightly traditions and the more ridiculous conventions of courtly love, but there is also a serious undertone here, foreshadowing events to come later in the Arthurian cycle. As the author notes in his afterword, much of "The Squire's Tale" is a reworking of a lesser-known story by the medieval French poet Chrétien de Troyes. Morris's treatment of the Byzantine Empire is also fresh and interesting. Fans of the series will definitely want this latest volume."Kathleen E. Gruver, Burlington County Library, Westampton, NJ"
