Winter 2020 Kids Indie Next List
“Max and the crew are back for another fantastic adventure. This time, knight training hasn’t gone exactly as Max had expected, and even worse, Byjovia is in trouble again — the Bodkins are returning (you’ll learn what a Bodkin is). Will brave Max, Kevyn, Millie, and Simon be able to save the kingdom again? Battle of the Bodkins has all of the action, villains, humor, and heart that readers loved in the first Max and the Midknights book. More Max? Yes, please!”

"Fantastic! I loved it!" -Dav Pikley, New York Times bestselling author of the Dog Man series
"Max is epic fun!" -Jeff Kinney, New York Times bestselling author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series
Max didn't expect knight school to be so tough. Luckily, she has her best friends--the Midknights--at her side. But when Byjovia is under attack, the Midknights will have to face beastly creatures, powerful spells, and their greatest foe yet--themselves?
Lincoln Peirce, author of the New York Times bestselling Max & the Midknights, brings more laughs, more adventures, and more silliness to Battle of the Bodkins, book two in the Max & the Midknights series.
The New York Times bestselling Max and the Midknights originated as an unfinished spoof of sword and sorcery tales. Returning to the idea years later, Lincoln rewrote the story around Max, a ten-year-old apprentice troubadour who dreams of becoming a knight.
When he is not writing or drawing, Lincoln enjoys playing ice hockey, doing crossword puzzles, and hosting a weekly radio show devoted to vintage country music. He and his wife, Jessica, have two children and live in Portland, Maine.
