Acclaimed cartoonist Scott Chantler’s SQUIRE & KNIGHT: WAYWARD TRAVELERS is a Junior Library Guild selection! 

Every year, JLG’s renowned editors curate selections for 80+ reading level and genre categories. All Librarian’s have to do is simply subscribe to the categories they’d like JLG’s help developing and, voila!, they’ll receive brand-new books in those categories every month, all year long.

And now SQUIRE & KNIGHT: WAYWARD TRAVELERS has been curated as one of those exciting books available!

SQUIRE & KNIGHT is the second volume of this middle-grade graphic novel series, where our heroes search for the mysterious school of wizardry, but are thwarted at every turn by thick mist, winding woods and fearsome creatures!

Our heroes are lost.

Squire and Sir Kelton have promised to get Cade to the school of wizardry. Strangely though, the path they’ve taken has brought them into a bewildering, misty forest, rife with fearsome gnolls and a boisterous rival knight. To get them out, Squire tries every trick in the book, but books don’t hold all the answers. Can he muster up his confidence, remember his duties, and find a way to escape the forest?
