Percival Adler is an ordinary boy who gets bullied because he is skinny, small, and an easy target. One day he is running away from three bullies Huey, Dewey, and Louie. He runs into the forest, and finds a door in the middle of it. He has to make a choice, should he go through the mysterious door or should he get pummeled. The door leads him, his friends, and his sister to an adventure with knights, samurai, pharaohs, and kings. The fate of the world is in their hands.
I liked The Reluctant knight a lot. In the first few chapters I didn’t really want to continue reading because it was sort of slow. But after that part it got more exciting and interesting. I liked how the chapters switched back and forth between perspectives when the characters were separated from each other. I liked them because I got to follow the different characters’ stories and that made it really clear what was happening. I definitely suggest this book to readers who like adventure and fantasy.
