Gerald Morris' THE KNIGHTS' TALES are a fun way to escape for a few hours. THE ADVENTURES OF SIR GAWAIN THE TRUE is the third installment in this series.

Sir Gawain is known as "the undefeated." He is tired of this title, but because it is what he is known as, when a battle comes up and King Arthur needs someone to win, it is Sir Gawain who is called up.

Sir Gawain returns to the court to recount a story of saving a damsel from a dragon. But when he is asked how he treated the damsel, he is dumbstruck. The damsel tried to thank him by bestowing a green sash on him, as well as a kiss on the cheek. But he refused both.

During a feast, a strange Green Knight appears at the Court. The knight challenges anyone to a game. Of course, being undefeated, King Arthur requests Sir Gawain to compete. The knight tells Sir Gawain to first strike a blow, and then he will do the same. Simple enough? Well, the knight wants Sir Gawain to strike an axe blow to his neck. Sir Gawain does as requested, and all are stunned when the knight picks his head up off the floor, tells Sir Gawain to appear at the Green Chapel on New Year's Day, and leaves. Sir Gawain knows that this will be the death of him, but he agrees.

King Arthur can't let his undefeated knight die, so he sends a group out to find Merlin, in hopes of finding a way to avoid Sir Gawain's death. Instead, the group meets Sir Gologras.

If you've read the other books in the series, then you will know that there are more surprises in store for King Arthur's group. Sir Gologras may not be who he seems. I don't want to give away the surprise ending, so I will stop there with my synopsis. But have no fear. As with the previous works in this series, there are many laughs and surprising moments on each page. I found myself laughing out loud a number of times. And that's quite impressive, considering the story is only 126 pages long. Pick up THE ADVENTURES OF SIR GAWAIN THE TRUE for a fun time.
