The Tyrant and the Squire Synopsis

Deep in the Crusades, Tom has run away from home to discover what the noble life of a knight is really like. But now that his dreams have come true and he has been knighted, all is not as rosy as he'd hoped.

The Tyrant and the Squire Press Reviews

Jones has used his formidable and extensive comedic talents to write a hilarious, fast-paced adventure story full of historical detail. . . . Reminiscent of Douglas Adams's Hitchhiker's Guide series, only set in medieval times and suitable for young children . . . a rollicking good time for all. --School Library Journal on The Lady and the Squire
