About the Book

Settle into your favorite chair, prop your feet up, and prepare to journey back in time to a world of knights and ladies, grace and bravery, where the chivalric code reigned supreme. Enter Camelot and relive the coming of Arthur and how as a young boy he pulled the sword from the stone and claimed his throne. Meet Merlin, Gawain, Balin le Savage, the Knights of the Round Table, and other legendary figures in exciting tales and colorful illustrations. Witness the marriage of Arthur and Guenevere, and the Queen's later romance with the handsome Lancelot. Watch as history's most famous knights demonstrate their bravery in a fierce joust. See the beginnings of the famous quest for the Holy Grail, and how Sir Galahad, the noblest of all knights, was conceived in trickery. Enjoy stories of magic and enchantment, valor and vengeance, that end with Arthur's death and the downfall of his knights, but remain in people's hearts forever.
