Have Sword, Will Travel (Hardcover)
When Odo stumbles upon an enchanted sword in the bottom of the lake, it immediately knights him, even though his best friend Eleanor is the one who's always wanted to be a knight. But the sword insists that it can't change allegiances and that Odo--now Sir Odo--is destined to be a true knight. And that means going on a quest. Along the way the three travelers meet all sorts--from brigands to dragons--and discover that being a knight might be about more than just tourneys and single combat. Smart, funny, and an absorbing read. — Lily (RBB Staff)— From Have Sword, Will Travel
It is strange enough that Odo and Eleanor have stumbled upon a sword in a dried-up river outside their village. It is even stranger that Odo is able to remove it from where it's buried. And it's REMARKABLY strange when the sword starts to talk.
Odo and Eleanor have unearthed Biter, a famous fighter from earlier times. By finding Biter, Odo instantly becomes a knight -- a role he is exquisitely unsuited for. Eleanor, however, would make a PERFECT knight -- but she's not the one with the sword.
Finding Biter is only the start -- boy, girl, and sword must soon go on a quest to save their kingdom from threats in both human and dragon form, in this new fantasy triumph from Garth Nix and Sean Williams.
