Tales of a Fifth-Grade Knight (Middle-grade Novels)
I think that the book Tales of a Fifth Grade Knight is a good book. It’s about a boy named Issac and his best friends, Max and Emma. They go to a school in the dungeon of a castle. Besides the fact that the school is in the dungeon of a castle, it’s a regular school in a regular town.
Issac, Max and Emma are in a school play and Issac’s little sister, Lily has to stay with him so their mother can pick them up at the same time. When they are leaving, Lily loses the “Jewel Gem” that was on her doll’s crown and they have to look for it. They look everywhere but they can’t find it. Then, they look in the janitor’s closet but end up getting locked in. Lily crawls through a dark tunnel and disappears. So Issac, Max and Emma decide to go through the tunnel and soon find a whole new world!
They meet a bat named Acro and a boy who take them to Underground Town. It was very beautiful there but they had to find Lily quick because they were told that if humans stay in the Underground Town too long, they’ll start weirding into elves! They meet a firefly lady, “Acro-rats”, an elf king, and even an ear with legs! They find Lily, but unfortunately that isn’t until Issac, Max and Emma are sent to the dungeon (where Lily was). Lily had already started “weirding”. They find a way to escape and Acro safely gets them all back home. What an adventure!
I think that this is a good book for ages 9-11.
