While traveling with Uncle Budrick as a wandering troubadour-in-training, Max reaches the once-friendly Kingdom of Byjovia and finds it downright hostile. When Uncle Budrick is kidnapped by Byjovia’s loathsome King Gastley, Max teams up with a bumbling sorcerer and a group of kid outcasts—dubbed the Midknights—to save the day. But it’ll take more than a daring rescue mission to discover what ails Byjovia. With only their wits to guide them, Max and the Midknights embark on a quest both thrilling and hilarious to restore the kingdom to its former high spirits.
