Sir James Knowle's epic tale of Arthur and his Knights of the Round Tale is resurrected in this ornate children's edition. Intricate black-and-white drawings of knights, damsels in distress, and wizards add to the mystery and folklore of Sir Arthur. Perfectly suited as both a "read aloud" book or for more advanced readers to conquer themselves, children of all ages will be whisked back in time with this classic tale.|
This work is based on "Morte d' Arthur" written by Sir Thomas Malory. This story, which has so deeply impressed itself upon the hearts and minds of men, centers on the shadowy but heroic figure of Arthur, king of the Britons in the 5th or 6th century. It has flowed over time by being told by various authors, and on this current it carried the elements of all the influences and ideals that were gradually determining the nature and standards of the English-speaking world. Handsomely illustrated.
