Max is training to be a knight and she has a substitute teacher which is not a good thing. One of her friends casts a spell to make books duplicate and one goes really wrong and starts to duplicate the student with an evil twin. As the evil spreads and all of the townspeople are replaced with the evil Bodkins and the kids must figure out who is who. This was a quick page-turner and laugh out loud funny and a quick and easy read for reluctant readers since it combines paragraphs along with cute graphics.
Max and the Midknights, Lincoln’s first book for Crown Books for Young Readers, originated as an unfinished spoof of sword & sorcery tales. Returning to the idea years later, Lincoln rewrote the story around Max, a ten-year-old apprentice troubadour who dreams of becoming a knight. The result is a high-spirited medieval adventure, supported by hundreds of dynamic illustrations employing the language of comics. Of the lively visual format that has become his trademark, Lincoln says, “I try to write the sort of books I would have loved reading when I was a kid.” When he is not writing or drawing, Lincoln enjoys playing ice hockey, doing crossword puzzles, and hosting a weekly radio show devoted to vintage country music. He and his wife, Jessica, have two children and live in Portland, Maine Jessica, have two children and live in Portland, Maine.
