A twelve-year-old boy comes across Arthur Pendragon, who has just awakened from his long sleep beneath the earth, and hears from him some of the exciting stories of his past.

King Arthur himself retells some of the most famous legends of the passionate and courageous Knights of the Round Table, including Guinevere and Sir Launcelot, Gawain and the Green Knight, and Tristram and Iseult, among others. Readers will be completely drawn into the magic, chivalry, courage, and mystery of the world of Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Morpurgo and Foreman have brought the High King of Britain back alive. This retelling stands with the best. --"School Library Journal"
