Review

King Arthur pulled the sword from the stone, had a Round Table and went in search of the Holy Grail. This may be all the knowledge some youngsters (and adults) have of the legendary son of Uther Pendragon, but there is so much more to know.

Starting with a mysterious dream that came to an ex-soldier called Merlin, this comprehensive retelling of Arthur’s mythical life begins years before his birth.

Find out how the battles, sieges and treachery faced by his father gave rise to the evil motivations of his half-sister, Morgana; celebrate the chivalry and loyalty of Lancelot; experience the frustrations and elation of the Grail quest; and revel in a new and exciting knowledge of a British legend!

Packed with bold, imaginative illustrations, this beautifully presented hardback book runs to almost 150 pages and is organised in manageable chapters. A great addition to any book collection.
