The Lovereading4Kids comment

September 2011 Guest Editor David Almond: "I still remember the moment I pulled this book from my Christmas stocking. I was seduced straight away by Lotte Reiniger’s wonderful austere illustrations, by Green’s magical prose, and by Arthur himself, an ordinary-seeming kid who sets the miraculous in motion by pulling the sword from the stone in such an offhand way. Wondrous stuff soon follows: earth-shattering battles, glimpses of Heaven, damsels in distress, enchanted knights, dragons, love, desire, treachery and sin. Bloody accounts of limbs being hacked off sit side-by-side with haunting descriptions of magic and miracle. The language is heightened, as it should be, but it never impedes the progress of these wonderful old tales."

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

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.

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.
