This title features ten legendary stories of the Knights of the Round Table. This engrossing collection retells the classic myths of King Arthur and his knights, whose exploits lie at the heart of many centuries of storytelling. It features all the memorable characters including Uther Pendragon, Queen Guinevere, Gawain, Lancelot, Bedwyr, Morgana and Mordred, and well-known places such as Tintagel and Camelot, the site of the Round Table. You can learn about Arthur's birth, the fate foretold for him by the wizard Merlin, the sword in the stone, the Saxon Wars, the lady in the lake, and the devastating final battle. Powerful and dramatic illustrations by Graham Howells bring the heroism and treachery of Arthur's turbulent time vividly to life. It is exciting and inspirational reading for 8- to 12-year-olds. The legends of King Arthur are among the richest and most mysterious in British folklore, and they remain popular throughout the world. There almost certainly was a real leader named Arthur, who was probably a clan chieftain from Cornwall, Wales or Scotland. Arthurian myths deal with important and timeless themes, such as temptation, betrayal, justice and the struggle for power. It is therefore not surprising that stories of this mighty Celtic warrior echo through the ages, making him a hero for our time as much as his own.
