Lovereading Review to follow..


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Wart had been old Merlin's pupil before, as squire to his foster brother. Sir Kay. he pulled the Sword out of the Stone - and became, to his embarrassment. 'King' Arthur. In this classic story, mystery, magic, myth, legend, romance are seen through a gently de-bunking yet still respectful eye.

Synopsis

The Sword In The Stone by T. H. White

“Come, sword,” said the Wart. He took hold of the handles with both hands, and strained against the stone… but nothing moved…

When the wizard Merlyn comes to tutor Sir Ector’s sons, Kay and the Wart, studying suddenly becomes much more exciting. After all, who wouldn’t enjoy being turned into a fish, or a badger, or a snake? But the Wart is destined for greater things and Merlyn’s magical teachings are only the beginning of his amazing future…

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
