Summary

Summary

In Camelot, King Arthur’s dog encounters a world of danger and magic…

Follow Cavall as he embarks on a quest that will put the unbreakable bond between a dog and his person to the ultimate test.

When Cavall and his older brother, Glessic, leave the comfort of their simple barn to join the lavish court of Camelot, Cavall wants nothing more than to prove he’s a good dog to the great knights and dogs of the castle—especially to King Arthur.

But Gless says only the best dogs are worthy of greatness, and Cavall has never been as strong, brave, or fast as his brother.

Meanwhile, malevolent forces lurk in Camelot, and Cavall must figure out how to protect his person. To make matters worse, Arthur’s mysterious nightmares are threatening to shake his grip on reality and undermine his authority as king.

To fight back against the dangers of the dream world, Cavall will need help from some loyal hounds and the enchanting, sometimes frightening creatures who call themselves the fay.

In this captivating debut from Audrey Mackaman, Cavall will have to prove not only that he can be a good dog for his person, but that he is capable of a greatness all his own.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Mackaman seamlessly weaves myths of Camelot together with universal lessons, including the best way to defend those one cares about and the merits of cooperation….This warm and action-packed series kickoff will leave readers eager to see what adventures Cavall stumbles into next.” Publishers Weekly
“In this smart romp, the young deerhound Cavall and his brother Glessic navigate the adventure and intrigue of King Arthur’s court…Mackaman skillfully shapes her dog-characters through their sensory experiences…[and] is equally sensitive in representing humans…Watch for sly references to T. H. White’s The Sword in the Stone. Verdict: Dog lovers and fans of medieval adventure will devour this tale of King Arthur’s court.” School Library Journal
“The appeal of the book is that it doesn’t always rely on battles or chase scenes to draw readers in. In the tradition of T. H. White, it’s about the moral questions that lead people into battle or make them walk away.” Kirkus Reviews
