Quest of the Fair Unknown (Squire's Tales Book 8)
Beaufils has never seen another human being except for his mother. He has lived in the forest his whole life and now must set out to find his father, whose name he does not know. Even though he has no knowledge of the world, he attempts the task and soon accompanies a "Christian Knight." pb, 264 pgs.
A medieval fantasy series set at the time of King Arthur's rule. These books are riddled with fine characters, laced with humor, and grounded in a good plot (and you might trip over a moral if you aren't looking... watch out for those!). Can you really go wrong with knights and faeries? I have enjoyed every minute I've read of these books, and they have succeeded in making me laugh out loud on several occasions, (an intimidating quest many books have failed). The first two books in the series follow a young squire, Terence, and his master Sir Gawain of the Round Table. The rest of the series focuses mostly on other characters. These stories find knights, ladies and others subtly conveying morals through tales of love, action, magic, pain... but mostly adventure.
