We finally finished this book and I'm rather mixed in my feelings. The chapters/sections lend themselves well to reading aloud (as in they're not too long). I think the author does a nice job with the chronology. I've read several Arthur books for children which were very confusing in how they jumped around. This wasn't jumpy.

I really enjoyed reading this book, even though it is a childrens retelling. Probably because of the fact that it is a childrens book, there is no obvious love affair between Guinevere and Sir Lancelot, and I really liked that. To me, I have always liked King Arthur better than Lancelot, and could never understand why his two best friends would hurt him like that.

Anyway, in this book it still used slightly archaic language, which I liked. The end was still very sad.

Now I won't have to be so ashamed with my (former) lack of knowledge and familiarity with Arthurian lore.

I mean, I've still got TONS to read ... but I know at least know a little about more of the Knights of the Round Table.

I should buy this one. The stories are just about the perfect length for bedtime stories.

Nice introduction to King Arthur. It's not really Caitlyn's thing, so this was mostly about "This is one of the culture's stories and you need to be familiar with it." Also, now she can watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

I thought this was a great re telling of Arthurian lore. The chapters and sections lent themselves well to being read aloud and I also liked that Lancelot and Guinevere don't have an affair in this version.

It was a good book. I just never enjoyed books in that era - with swords and things as much as other types of books.
