The Knighting of Sir Kaye
Don M. Winn, author
In the medieval land of Knox, 12-year-old Kaye dreams of becoming a knight like his father. When the new queen knights Kaye for doing a brave deed, he gets his wish a lot sooner than he expected—but he’s got a lot to live up to. Can he hold his own against all the other knights who hate him? Can he outwit the terrible Sir Melchor and defeat him in the tournament?
Reviews
In this first book in the Sir Kaye: The Boy Knight series, two sensitive outliers—Reggie, the story’s narrator, and Kaye, a talented knitter who strives to become a great knight—meet in the medieval forests of Knox and become tentative friends. While exploring the woods, the boys are embroiled in a series of light, comical escapades, while learning about the give-and-take nature of friendship. After rescuing the nephew of Knox’s new queen from bandits, they are invited to Castle Forte, where Kaye has the opportunity to become a real knight, and Reggie, his assistant. Reggie’s dry sense of humor makes him a companionable narrator; this, along with some brisk action sequences and Allred’s occasional b&w illustrations, should give Winn’s story solid, broad appeal. While dramatic tension builds slowly, with the initial chapters reading like stand-alone episodes, the plot comes together once the boys arrive at the castle. Fortitude, good will, and friendship triumph over pettiness in this enjoyable story. The second book in the series, The Lost Castle Treasure, is also available. Ages 8–up. (BookLife)
IndieReader Review

IndieReader Discovery Award Winner - Sir Kaye, The Boy Knight is really an excellent start to what promises to be a fine medieval adventure series for young children, readable and entertaining...This is a lively and adventurous kids’ book, full of gentle humor and warmth. The boys are appealingly human and, well, boyish, with the beginnings of real nobility and honor but by no means over-idealized...The adventures are neither dull nor too scary for the young reader, and the plot is cheerful, lively and entertaining...The writing is clear, smooth, and well-edited, as a children’s book ought to be...there are clever and bright touches throughout.- Catherine Langrehr for IndieReader Review
