Synopsis: Artie opens a mysterious locker at Camelot Middle School and ends up in a dodgeball game with the school bullies.
Review: “Knights of the lunch table” is a retelling of the King Arthur story with a grade school twist. Artie King is a new student at school. Instead of pulling the stone from Excalibur, Artie opens an unopenable “magic” locker. The story is clever in its retelling with most of the elements of the Arthurian legend here in one form or another. It is a decent yarn, though not particularly deep. I would recommend it for grades four through six. The colorful characters make it a possibility for reluctant readers, although the language is a bit complicated.
