The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp

12 Oct



Title: The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp

Author: Rick Yancey

Series: 1st book in a trilogy

Recommended for: Teenagers 13-17 years old

Pages: 339



Alfred Kropp is the last person you’d think could save the world. But when this oversized underachiever gets roped into a suspicious get-rich-quick scheme, his life takes a turn for the extraordinary. Little does Alfred know he has been tricked into stealing Excalibur–the legendary sword of King Arthur–and the most powerful weapon ever wielded by man.

With an ancient order of knights in hot cars, thugs on motorcycles, and a mysterious international organization following his every lumbering step, Alfred undertakes a modern-day quest to unravel a thousand-year-old mystery and return the sword to its rightful place.

My Thoughts: I loved this book because it was interesting and engaged the reader with twists and turns along the way. This would be a great book to recommend to fans of the Percy Jackson books because it involves magic in the English legends with an awkward teenager.  Kids would love this trilogy.
