    The Usborne Puzzle Adventures were all the rage when I was in primary school: brightly coloured mystery stories that required a degree of reader interaction. On every page was a puzzle for the reader to solve, whether it was the decoding of a secret message, the finding of an object hidden somewhere in the illustrations, or some other brainteaser that required lateral thinking."The Dark Dark Knight" was one of the later installments in the series, one that I never read as a child. It therefore didn't carry quite the same amount of nostalgic quality as some of the others, but it's still a fun time-travelling adventure.Years ago the kingdom of Hamalot was ruled over by Good King Stan who had his hands full fighting the forces of the Dark Knight and his evil witch Nastina. After Stan's kidnapping, the people of Hamalot came to the castle to consult the wisdom of the wizard Nerlym who prophesied that one day two saviours would one day appear: St Halo and ye Martyr.A thousand years later, friends Haley and Martha decide to take a picnic to Yew Tree Wood, only vaguely aware of the strange occurrences that have been going on around town. Out in the woods they find a secret door that leads to an ancient crypt where two knights lie sleeping. By blowing a nearby horn the girls awake the knights and find that they're the foretold heroines who must return to medieval times in order to find Good King Stan and defeat the Dark Dark Knight.The story takes them around the kingdom and into the wilderness, incorporating dozens of characters and a wide range of challenging puzzles. As you may have guessed from some of the aforementioned names, it's all a bit of a riff of Arthurian legend, with plenty of puns and other bits of wordplay.Peter Wingham provides the illustrations; a bright and detailed rendering of medieval times to go with Lesley Sims's story. Though not the best this series has to offer, "The Dark Dark Knight" is still a fitting addition.
