A quick read after a somewhat tiring day and week I always enjoy reading about Arthur and his knights of the Round Table, and this was no different Although written for children, so the events succeed each other quite quickly, there were enough new elements in each story to keep me guessing and interested. So great.Arthurian legend is awesome to me, I just love it This book is a gorgeous sort of story book that does a great job of telling many of the main stories from Arthurian legend in a brief but highly informative way I liked the format a lot because it would have 2 pages of brief descriptions of smaller things like Argante or Merlin s prophecies or the Round Table and then the next maybe 10 pages would just be a story like how Arthur got Excalibur or Gawaine and the Green Knight.The illustr So great.Arthurian legend is awesome to me, I just love it This book is a gorgeous sort of story

illustrations were gorgeous and so fun to look at and I enjoyed the simplistic storytelling that still managed to be very magical and make me wish the stories were true Merlin s own end is as uncertain as his beginning Some say that he fell in love with a beautiful fairy woman, Nimue, one of the Nine Ladies of the Lake, and that she placed spells around him and kept him in an enchanted place forever But others tell it differently that he grew tired of the follies of men and returned to the Golden Wood, where he built a house of glass with seventy doors and windows There he is still, watching the stars turn across the heavens, and waiting for King Arthur to come again I mean that is just plain awesome I think this book works as a great introduction to the legend of King Arthur and I m tempted to buy a copy to keep at home Reason for Reading I love the old Arthurian Tales of Camelot and the Knights of the Round Table Which this book is FYI, I m not so fond of modern retellings, only if they involve Arthur as a boy or focus on Merlin as the main character.This book was published a couple years ago in an oversized picture book format which I am sure is simply breath taking and

couple years ago in an oversized picture book format which I am sure is simply breath taking and would be the edition you would want if you want to read this aloud to younger children or even a group of children This edition I have has been reduced into a trade paperback chapter book edition, meant to be read alone but of course you can read it aloud too I ve come to realize now that Barefoot Books produce quality books and Arthur, by example, is covered with thick stock card covers that have flaps and the inside pages are of the same thick quality, found in their hardcovers, not used by many publishers for softcovers.The paintings by Tartarnikov are exquisite medieval representations of the scenes he has chosen to illustrate Hi paintings are 3 dimensional but he does leave a small 2 dimensional aspect remindful of the artwork from the original time period The paintings have a mystical, dreamy quality to them as he combines the magical with the reality of the then knights in all their splendiferous glory A perfect illustrator for this text.The book itself concentrates on retelling several stories from the multitude available The stories start logically with the sword in the stone and end with the quest for the holy grail, but in between the tales are a various selection, of no particular order, mainly those featuring chivalry, saving maidens and fighting brutish knights Of course, everyone is sent back to Arthur to tell his tale and this is the one constant through the flow of the individual tales The author has managed to keep a sense of time and place in his choice of vocabulary making the book seem authentic to its medieval setting This does make the book better suited to being read by the middle grades and up, though None of the steamier storylines are introduced here, even though those characters are present, leaving only the convictions against Guinevere to be suggested A lovely introduction to the Arthurian literary world Arthur of Albion A

amazed me Deserves to be read in one sitting Nice Reading I loved it It was fantastic.
