S is for Simon Sharp #AtoZChallenge



S is for Simon Sharp, of The Camelot Kids by Ben Zackheim

In a nutshell: Simon is a stubborn, independent, resourceful kid -- mostly because his luck runs the gamut. His best days can end up as his worst days. And his closest friends can be his greatest enemies.

His biggest secret is that he's the reincarnation of a Knight of the Round Table.

Favorite line: "How many more surprises does Merlin plan to pull out of his beard?"

I reviewed this one recently, and found it a highly enjoyable read.

    1. Ben is a great writer! His "Shirley Link" series are great detective stories for kids. They are short, but not written for beginning readers--just really good upper-elementary stories that don't go on for hundreds of pages :) This one is really 4 books rolled into one, though I personally couldn't have read just one of the books.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Definitely a good choice for kids who liked Harry Potter and maybe especially Percy Jackson. And I love your name. Cat Herder...before I check out your blog, I'm guessing parent of small children :D

  3. I've not quite finished it... I think I may have read your review before you nominated it for the GMGR, but I'm enjoying the book a lot - just wish I had more time this month!

  4. Reincarnation is intriguing, but I believe in it.
    Does Simon Sharp know that he's the reincarnated version?
    That's his secret. That means he is very much aware! Correct me if I am wrong.
    Interesting :)

    1. Well, let's just say that it's something he has to learn. And then learn how to deal with it.

  5. Very cool book that would have hooked an adolescent me. Who am I kidding! I still think much the same way.
