LoveReading View on King Arthur And His Knights Of The Round Table (with an introduction by David Almond)

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.
