The Magic Sword
The Magic SwordThe School for Knights 2Magnus Ljunggren, illustrated by Mats Vänehem
The School for Knights is a series about three friends, Egon, Fiona and Urban, who attend the school for knights and are training to be knights.
In the second completely free-standing story The Magic Sword the three friends first of all manage to lose the king’s magic sword, but eventually they find it and return it. Excitement, drama and humour in an entertaining mixture of the life of a knight and a school setting, perfect for both boys and girls.
Magnus Ljunggren, who also writes books for adolescents and is a scriptwriter for film and television, has written the easy-to-read, amusing text. Mats Vänehem is an illustrator and an archaeologist, and has produced the action-packed, sharp and entertaining illustrations; the perspective is dizzying, the details fascinating. This is his debut as an illustrator of children’s books
