An excellent retelling of all the King Arthur stories, as told by an elderly Arthur to a young boy The hardback is printed on nice heavy paper and would make an excellent gift. Brilliant Michael Morpurgo book My children and husband have thoroughly enjoyed readying It s well written and puts all of those well know Arthurian legends plus some we d never heard of into one book It s been read and read again Would certainly recommend to other Michael Morpurgo or Arthurian fans A very good read, very good plot and story, very well written My 9yr old loved it My 8 year old enjoyed this. Great story on two cassettes, but the ending leaves one hanging I m wondering if there are other stories that come after this that are part of this same storyline I first came across this book when I was reading War Horse also by Michael Morpurgo and I thought it would be a good book to read as I like history and I had learnt about King Arthur at school When I read it I really liked it so when I got an Email from to say I could review it I jumped at the chance to as it was a really good book and I wanted other people to read and enjoy this book.Thanks for reading my review and I hope you enjoy the book
