Joe, Sam, and Fred are celebrating Joe's birthday when Joe receives a mysterious gift from his uncle. It's a strange, dark blue book with silver designs on it. When Fred opens the book to a picture of a knight in black armor, the kitchen disappears, and the boys find themselves face to face with a Black Knight who declares, 'Halt, vile knaves. Prepare to die.' Can Joe, Sam, and Fred find a way to vanquish the Black Knight (and maybe a giant and a dragon) and get back to their own time?
