" I really, really loved the illustrations in this book. The are absolutely gorgeous. However, condensing the reign of King Arthur into only three points was overly ambitious and poorly done. " said.

" The pictures in this version--especially the borders--are really beautiful. I chuckled a little about how she tried to clean up the story for children but on the whole I really enjoyed reading it. " said.

" I love Arthur legends, and this 38 page book is a great introduction for elementary ages. Trina Schart Hyman is also one of my favorite illustrators of all time! " said.

" I'm always excited to see a Trina Schart Hyman book I've never encountered before, and this looks like a great one! " said.

" Beautiful illustrations and a brief retelling of parts of Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur made this OOP book worth searching for. " said.

" A nice introduction to Arthurian legend for young readers. The beautifully illustrated pages remind me of Medieval illuminated manuscripts. " said.

" A simplified bare-bones telling of the basic Arthurian legends. This is a good introduction, but fantasy fans will want the stories more fleshed out. Beautiful illustrations and borders add to the flavor of the text. " said.

" Lovely illustrations, and a decently watered down version of Arthurian legend. Again, Hyman presents believable medieval detailing to her illustrations, such as illuminated letters and elaborate borders. Her usual mystical, magical style prevails. " said.
