This was the first King Arthur book I ever read at the tender age of eight, bought at a yard sale for a dime. I recently tracked it down after finding out my mom donated it to a school along with a pile of my other childhood favorites.

King Arthur: His Knights and Their Ladies is a distilled version of the King Arthur stories everyone knows. For me, it was a gateway into other Arthurian stuff and fantasy in general.

As I said, it's distilled. Arthur's origin is simplified, the Knights of the Roun

If you're wanting to read this book for an enjoyable, pleasurable story... think again.
My husband suggested I read this book after I read a book that had some King Arthur legends stirred in it. I couldn't figure out what parts were the legends, and which were what the author made up. This book is a great juvenile summary of most of the famous Arthur legends. Now it all makes sense! And Brian says Monty Python will make more sense now. :)
So use this book for quick reference if you're dumb like m
I was reading this for my Secondary 2 english class, so the whole class had to read it together. It took at least one month to read this, and while I was reading this in class, I was reading Mary Stewart's Merlin Trilogy at home. Mary Stewart's is much better than this, because she explains different possibilities at the end of her book (1). Not this book. Anyways, I give it a 2.5/5 stars. I do recommend people to read it though!

Quick read that retells a handful of stories from Le Morte d'Arthur. It's worth reading if you just want a quick overview or refresher on some of the Arthurian tales. The writing itself is decent (which, if you've read a lot of these retellings, isn't always the case,) but not engaging or rich enough to breathe new life into the stories.

Nice but a little kiddish. I hate the fact that Arthur actually had a kid with his half-sister and he didn't even know. Plus all that bewitching people to look like other people just for love is pretty stupid. Anyway,... it's still a classic.
3 out of 5.

A very brief, simplified retelling of the story of King Arthur and his knights and their ladies. There are some good stories in there, but this telling of them is pretty bland.
