Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

King Arthur is one of the greatest legends of all time. From the magical moment when Arthur releases the sword in the stone to the quest for the Holy Grail and the final tragedy of the Last Battle, Roger Lancelyn Green brings the enchanting world of King Arthur stunningly to life.

One of the greatest legends of all time, with an inspiring introduction by David Almond, award-winning author of Clay, Skellig, Kit's Wilderness and The Fire-Eaters.

Synopsis:

Robin Hood, champion of the poor and opponent of the Sheriff of Nottingham, takes refuge in the Sherwood Forest and outwits his enemies with daring and panache.

Synopsis:

A masterful retelling of the last great legend of the Heroic age! This is the story of Helen and the judgment of Paris; of the gathering of the heroes and the siege of Troy; of Achilles with his vulnerable heel; of Odysseus, the last of the Heroes.

Elizabeth-Byrd, December 12, 2012 (view all comments by Elizabeth-Byrd)
I think that at the beginning of this book the story was hard to follow. I think this because it was written in the way that the people in the Middle Ages spoke. Once you are around page 30-40 the story starts to pick up because you get used to the type of format it is written in. Each chapter is like a different story. Some of the chapters are about love, yet some about adventure.
