Description

The Knights of King Mewkus’s roundtable have all retired; only one knight (along with his friendly pet turtle and ostrich) comes to the king’s aid when doom strikes the townspeople of Boo’Gar. 

Storm clouds hang over the kingdom of Boo’Gar. The cantaloupe crop has failed. There is no money in the treasury. Even kind old King Mewkus has started to doubt himself. Can things get any worse? Of COURSE they can! When Princess Phlema’s beloved goat is kidnapped, King Mewkus and his trusted wizard must assemble those fearsome warriors for justice—The Knights of Boo’Gar! There are just a few small problems. Sir Justin ditched the knights to start a boy band. Sir Daphne traded in her sword for a real estate license. Sir John shed his armor to become a tax attorney. That just leaves young (and short) Sir Rowland and his trusty pet turtle, Angelina. Okay … so maybe there’s a LOT of problems.
 
The Knights of Boo’Gar is a fast-paced adventure filled with monsters, nose goblins, a spunky princess, and an ostrich named Tulip. Can Rowland conquer his fears in time to rescue the royal goat and expose a diabolical plot against his kingdom?
