Arthur has no thoughts of being king - he's a squire and that's that. But the old king is dead and Merlin the wizard has set up a sword, pushed halfway into a rock. The one who pulls out the sword will be the new king - and soon, that's Arthur! Follow King Arthur as he battles giants and knights, and learns to be a true king.

Bloomsbury High Low books encourage and support reading practice by providing gripping, age-appropriate and illustrated stories for struggling and reluctant readers, those with dyslexia, or those with English as an additional language (EAL). With bonus bits at the back of the book, including reading notes and exciting facts, these are perfect for sparking discussion and engaging young readers. Printed on tinted paper with a dyslexia-friendly font, King Arthur is aimed at readers aged 10+ and has a manageable length (96 pages) and reading age (8+).

This series of books have been a big hit with my lower ability readers and children with EAL. It has been so refreshing to find high-interest reading books that are filled with great vocabulary to get our teeth into. - Natalie Rogers, Year 6 teacher and Writing Lead

This fabulous Dyslexia friendly mini-series is the perfect accompaniment to any topic on mythology. The perfect way to extend children’s knowledge around topics they are learning in class in an easy to access grown-up looking format. I love that the text is broken up by pictures and is spaced well, meaning they are more accessible to those who struggle with larger chunks of text whilst still looking to all intents and purposes like the friends they are helping. The fact these books are printed on yellow paper further increases their accessibility. - Starlight and Stories,

Benjamin Hulme-Cross does a great job of concisely retelling each of these gripping adventures. Aimed at children of 10+ with a reading age of 8+, these classic stories are compelling reads, full of action. There are wonderful illustrations throughout each book from Alessia Trunfio which add to the atmosphere of each story. - North Somerset Teachers' Book Award Blog
