Overview

Centuries ago, a great king lived and fought in the British Isles. His name was Arthur, and since that time, numerous stories and legends have sprung up around his name. This book contains a selection of those stirring tales of far-off days, specially adapted for young readers.
You'll learn about King Arthur's boyhood and the thrilling story of how he came to be king after pulling a sword from a stone. Also told here is the story of Arthur's marriage to Guenevere, how he acquired the great sword Excalibur, the founding of the Knighthood of the Round Table, and more.
Sir Launcelot was the greatest knight of the Round Table and this book recounts a host of his exciting adventures, too — his great prowess in battle, his daring journey to the Chapel Perilous, fight with a deadly dragon, how he rescued Queen Guenevere from death by fire and many other adventures.
The romance and chivalry of the Middle Ages spring to life in these pages, ready to enchant youngsters with high drama and daring deeds from days of yore.
These stories have inspired numerous film adaptations, including the 2017 release Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur, directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Eric Bana, Djimon Hounsou, and Annabelle Wallis.

This book is for children, and I wouldn't recomended for any one else. It doesn't stick to the story as well as it could. Only for children.
