"Fantastic! I loved it!" --Dav Pilkey, New York Times bestselling author of the Dog Man series

Can Max and her band of loyal friends unlock the mystery of her past? Lincoln Peirce pens another epic quest in The Tower of Time, book three in the New York Times bestselling Max & the Midknights series.
About the Author
Lincoln Peirce is a New York Times bestselling author and cartoonist. His comic strip Big Nate appears in over 400 newspapers worldwide and online at gocomics.com/bignate. In 2010, Lincoln introduced the self-styled “king of detention” to a new generation of young readers as a series of illustrated novels. In the past ten years, over twenty million Big Nate books have been sold, and Nickelodeon has created an animated series based on the character.
Max and the Midknights and Battle of the Bodkins, Lincoln’s instant New York Times bestselling novels for Crown Books for Young Readers, originated as a spoof of sword and sorcery tales. The Tower of Time reunites Max and her friends for a rollicking time-travel saga.
Lincoln and his wife, Jessica, have two children and live in Portland, Maine.
