Commenter: Emily, grade 18
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?

Any young child who has ever lost a beloved stuffed toy or blanket, or has feared it was lost, will relate to this story of a toddler who loses her favorite stuffed toy, Knuffle Bunny. On a trip to the laundromat with her dad, Trixie loses Knuffle Bunny. Since Trixie can't talk yet, she tries to tell her dad of the emergency in the only way she knows how: gibberish. She throws a tantrum when he doesn't understand. They are both very upset until they arrive home, where Trixie's mom notices Knuffle Bunny's absence. All's well that ends well: Knuffle Bunny is found at the laundromat, and Trixie speaks her very first words! The spot-on portrayal of a toddler tantrum is also likely to amuse parents.

Art, Myrtle, and Father are involved in an adventure in outer space. Their house, Larklight, floats in space as a very different house. Pirates and huge spiders with strong silky webs help Art and Myrtle discover sensational tales about their mother, father, and England. This is a sometimes humorous and sometimes scary tale that continues in two more books. This is the first in the series followed by Starcross and then Mothstorm.
