Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanne K. Pettenati J.D.
Camelot with all its intrigue, bravery, enchantments, and splendor, comes alive for listeners in this vibrant telling of the legend. Our story opens with the King of England on his deathbed. The wizard Merlin is at his side. The king beseeches Merlin to explain to Arthur why he was raised as Sir Ector's (a foster father) son, in ignorance of his legacy. The narrator has a deep, mellifluous voice that pulls listeners into the tale. His diction is clear and phrasing just right to capture the rhythm and import of the story. Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table are irresistible subjects. Every sentence is carefully crafted to hold the listener's interest. Suspense mounts as the narrator discusses Arthur and the wise, difficult decisions he is called to make. Forces plot against him—will the King prevail? Memorable are the tales of Sir Gawain and his encounters with the "Green Knight," the bittersweet love story of Lancelot and Guinevere, the quest for the Holy Grail, and the demise of Camelot. The evil Mordred and Morgana Le Fay scheme and plot to vanquish Arthur and his kingdom. Just when listeners think all is lost, they learn that Arthur and his Camelot may yet rise again. This title, which consists of two CDs, is one in the publisher's "Junior Classics" series. Total listening time is approximately 2 � hours. Reviewer: Jeanne K. Pettenati, J.D.
