" very good storys about king arthur and his knights from the sword in the stone to the last battle the athor dose a lot of books about king arthur " said.

" If you're interested in King Arthur and the story behind his Round Table, then this book is for you. Not meant as a reference book, it's more intended as a enjoyable read to learn the general ideas behind the stories. Although the illustrations aren't done in the traditional King Arthur style, younger readers will probably enjoy the new look. " said.

" I finished reading this to my family this week. Overall, it's a good read, especially since I've never learned about many of the Arthur stories. This was a good first primer on the subject. Good book for third and fourth graders, but there is one pretty gruesome scene when one character's head gets cut off. I think that was a little too much for this age group. " said.

" Not a bad basic book to get kids into the stories of King Arther and his knights of the round table. So many parts were left out and it seems to jump around so that it did not flow well. I hope this intro book leads young readers to the actual classic tale and if it does then this book has served its purpose. " said.

"Borrowed this book from my cousin who is in 7th grade, when I had nothing else to read :P
I had watched and enjoyed the movie King Arthur(2004) and I was quite eager to take up this one.
This is a children's book. A lot of legends about the King and his Knights are just put together in 150 pages. At first, I was excited about all the magical elements associated. But the story telling is poor and the magics and wizardry are not so exciting. I don't think this would be very captivating for children. 3 stars.
The movie is greatly recommended for people who are interested though.
" said.

"Not a bad story.
The story was much different than I anticipated considering I watched the Sword of the Stone a dozen times before reading this. I am a mythology lover and I do like the magical/mythological events in this story, but I just read so many mythology stories prior to this that I don't consider this my most favorite. Plus, I've read so many endings similar to this story where it was all like "To this day King Arthur is still alive in Avalon and is believed to return and rescue his country when Britain is in great peril." But just an FYI, this only felt repetitious on my part since I read a lot of mythology books. Individually, I'd rate this book 3 stars. But compared to the other mythology books I've read (i.e. Mahabharata, Oedipus Rex, etc), it'd have to give it only 2 stars; the morals and surprise twists in this mythology story didn't impress me as much as the other texts I have read.
" said.

" My 7 year old enjoyed it, though parts of it were perhaps too mature for him. I did some impromptu editing as I read. Still, a good read - not too simplified. Plenty of rich language. " said.

" Very basic and simple. I like it, but still very basic. " said.
