The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of the best known and best loved stories in mythology, how a small boy pulls the sword from the stone thus proving that he is its rightful keeper and so also the future king has enchanted generations of readers. Helped by the wizard Merlin, the boy becomes King Arthur and round him gathers the Knights of the Round Table, his companions in the quest for the Holy Grail. This retelling brings alive the court of Arthur and the individual characteristics – good and bad – of the knights of his court. In his introduction, David Almond describes how he was spellbound by the book as a child and remains spellbound every time he rereads it. Add on material gives a useful who’s who or Camelot’s characters.

King Arthur is one of the greatest legends of all time. From the moment when Arthur releases the sword in the stone to the quest for the Holy Grail and the final tragedy of the Last Battle, this book attempts to bring the world of King Arthur to life.
