(From the publisher):
Piers (or Pierre, as he wants to be called) is desperate to become a page to escape the dirty, tedious labor of his father’s blacksmith shop. So when a knight shows up and says he’s on “the quest,” Piers begs to go along. Surprisingly his father lets him, and soon he is off on a series of adventures he never dreamed possible. However, Piers’s knight quickly runs into some difficulties and is slain by an odd character named Parsifal, who is on his own quest to become a knight. Piers has no other choice but to throw his lot in with Parsifal.
Parsifal is unlike anyone Piers has ever met and doesn’t behave “knightly” at all, but slowly Piers begins to realize that being a knight has nothing to do with shining armor and winning jousts. As their journey continues, Piers and Parsifal are drawn into the Quest for the elusive Holy Grail. They find that to achieve this quest, they must learn more than knighthood, they must learn about themselves.
