    Daddy and daughter LOVED it!

    My daughter (8) and husband listened/read this book together. I bought it because there are so many references to King Arthur, Lancelot, Merlin, etc in everyday literature, movies, music, etc. They both couldn't wait to read it each night! Now I am going to get more of the classic stories (Greek mythology, Arabian nights, etc) from this series. We have also given it as gifts and it has been well received. I highly recommend this book!
