The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp by Rick Yancey
This book was awesome! I see it as King Arthur meets Artemis Fowl. This story is all about a boy and a sword. Alfred Kropp is a sixteen-year-old orphan with an enormous head. He lives with his uncle who is a security guard. One day, Alfred's uncle agrees to steal a sword for a mysterious man. Alfred, against his better judgement, helps his uncle. How was he to know that the sword was Excalibur's? How was he to know that the man that he turned it over to was The Dragon, an evil man? Now with the help of a knight named Bernard and a secret organization, Alfred will try to reclaim the sword. Can a sixteen year-old orphan with a big head save the world?
