Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Retold out of the old romances, this collection of Arthurian tales endeavors to make each adventure--"The Quest for the Round Table, " "The First Quest of Sir Lancelot, " "How the Holy Grail Came to Camelot, " and so forth--part of a fixed pattern that effectively presents the whole story, as it does in Le Morte D'Arthur, but in a way less intimidating to young readers.

Synopsis:

This retelling of Malory's stories of King Arthur was first published in 1953.

About the Author

David Almond is the author of Clay as well as Skellig (a Michael L. Printz Honor Book, winner of the Carnegie Medal, and winner of the Whitbread Children's Book Award) and The Fire-Eaters (winner of the Whitbread Children's Book Award).

Lots of action, fights, monsters, and evil powers, and the great knights, sir lancelot, sir Gawain, and sir Lucan, have many adventures
As well as to save camelot.

Do you like the Arthurian Legends? Of course you do. Dumb question.

This is a very basic, but outstandingly classic retelling of these myths, tales, historically accurate accounts - whatever you choose to believe. The book's written well enough for the most literary adults, but simple enough for the kids. Your whole family will love it.

So if you're looking for the classic story, choose this. It's cheap, small and most importantly: meaty.

By the way, in my world, "meaty" is synonymous to "well-written" and "packed with splendor".
