Amusement abounds in Excalibur’s return

– The Wrong Sword by Ted Mendelssohn; an Amazon   4.8 stars rating and 4.11 stars on Goodreads.

My Take on The Wrong Sword:

13608750Mendelssohn creates a witty tale outside the pages of myth in his depiction of the legendary Excalibur, King Arthur of Camelot’s famous sword.  Set in Europe in the time of the Plantagenet family rein, a crafty thief is forced to use his guile and intellect to find Excalibur and deliver it to an unsavory contender for the British throne but when he finally pulls the famous sword from its resting place, he finds the sword has its own ideas about who should wield it.  Read the rest of this entry »

You’ve likely seen similar characters from other books, television and movies but Pratchett takes the classic comedy duo and firmly plants them in a fantasy world that is over the top hilarious.
