Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-This simplified retelling of the Howard Pyle classic is accessible to readers who might not be able to handle the lengthier legends. The author maintains some of the charm of the original by using extended chapter titles such as "How Arthur Performed the Miracle of the Sword and Discovered His Birthright." A concluding chapter suggests several questions for discussion. What is missing is the beautiful, though complex, language of other retellings. Additionally, the author takes a slightly moralistic tone at times when addressing readers. Though reluctant readers may have an easier time with these stories, they might not be engaged enough to want to approach the originals later on. Librarians and teachers might want to recommend audio books or some of Margaret Hodges's picture-book versions of the King Arthur tales (Holiday House) instead of this watered-down adaptation.-Cheri Dobbs, Detroit Country Day Middle School, Beverly Hills, MI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    Great introduction to classics

    I purchased this book along with many other 'classic starts' books for my 6 year old. He loves the story of King Arthur and the knights of the round table. This book was not too hard for him to read and it really inspired his imagination!! These books are well written and are perfect for the 6-10 age range (in my opinion).

    Great for young readers

    These books are fantastic for those young reader who want to dig into some great classics but are a little too young for the big wording. These books take the same great classic story and translate them into easier to read versions. Also can be used for AR reading points in school!!
