Augie & The Green Knight by Zach Weinersmith, Illustrations by Boulet; 2015; $35.00; 219 pages; Breadpig, Inc; 978-0-9785016-9-3; backed on Kickstarter, July 2014; 11/27/16-11/29-/16

Why did I read this?  This was a book I backed on Kickstarter back in 2014.  I backed it because the main character was a young girl and I thought it was something my Granddaughter Nola and I could read together.

Augie is exploring in a forest behind her home when she encounters the Green Knight and begins a year long adventure with him, complete with the Knights of the Round Table and all kind of imaginary nonsense characters.  The main story is not bad, but there is so much extraneous nonsense that it detracts from the story.
