From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-7 An attractive book, similar in style to the author-illustrator's Merry Ever After (Viking, 1976), that will delight and inform the increasing number of fans of knights and knighthood. When Baron Orlando's son Justin becomes a knight, the baron holds a tournament in his honor. Justin worries about his first showing as a knight, especially when challenged by an older knight-errant to individual combat, which, if Justin loses, could mean forfeiting his life or half of his father's estate. A note to readers likens the tournament to a big-league sports event, and readers can readily make comparisons from the heralds as referees to the identifying crests and colors. The colorful pageantry and bustlefrom the pickpockets and beggars accompanying the camped-out assemblage, to the arms and etiquette of the meetis given in lively text and paintings. (Their authentic details are drawn from such recognizable sources as Bruegel.) A glossary and labeled jacket illustration of a mounted knight and arms add to the usefulness. Ruth M. McConnell, San Antonio Public Library
