King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table (Puffin Classics)by Roger Lancelyn Green
Synopses & Reviews
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.
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.
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.
