Imagine a kingdom of wizards and witches, fire-spitting dragons and dreadful giants. Who can rule this magical land? Who can overcome the powers of evil? King Arthur and the brave Knights of the Round Table! Read six rousing legends of King Arthur and his knights. The grade three reading level and large print puts these time-honored adventures within reach of children long before they can manage Malory's edition. The simple vocabulary retains the spirit of the courtly heroics and colorful pomp. Recommended for ages 6 to 9, grade 3.
