    “Laced with magic, humor, and chivalry, this reworking of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight provides an engaging introduction to the original tale.” —The Horn Book   Squire Terence and Sir Gawain are off questing again, but this time their journey is overshadowed by their ultimate destination: Gawain is to meet up with the Green Knight in a contest that could easily lead to Gawain’s death. Along the way the two have a slew of hair-raising adventures and encounter the usual odd assortment of characters, including the plucky Lady Eileen. Sparks instantly fly between Terence and Eileen as she joins the squire and his knight on their travels. As they weave their way between the world of men and the Other World, Gawain and Terence discover much about themselves.  The Squire, His Knight, and His Lady is the sequel to Gerald Morris’s debut book, The Squire’s Tale, about which the Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books raved, “This Arthurian road trip will have readers wondering why there aren’t more books like this one and hoping that Morris will do it again.” And so he has.   “Fast moving and easy to read, this novel will lure youngsters into wanting to read about Camelot, while those familiar with the legends will enjoy this new interpretation.” —School Library Journal (starred review)   “The glory days of knights and quests are brought to life with humor, dimensional characters, exceptionally descriptive prose, and fresh, modern dialogue.” —Booklist   “[A] engaging adventure, an ideal follow-up to the first book and just as full of characters who are brave, loyal, and admirably human.” —Kirkus Reviews
