This book is about the first series of the Knights' Kingdom. It tells a brief adventure, a mixture of medieval and futuristic fiction. The story is similar to the Bionicle books, just shorter. And that is what the kids complained about: It was too short.
I recommend the book for younger readers, or as a read-aloud (has enough pictures to keep them content).

This is the first book (other than short picture books) my son (5 1/2) was motivated enough to read on his own (of course he needed help with a few words). Hard to tell until you read it that it's continued in another book & there's no mention of which book is the sequel (it's Grand Tournament). I had to get on the Amazon site & read descriptions of all the Knight's Kingdom books to figure that out since this is the only book identified numerically "#1". Kind of annoying that they didn't make this clearer. But it's a great book for boys & as soon as we got the sequel he read right through that also. He's never seen the Lego toys that go with it so it's not necessary to enjoy the book.
