One of the best retellings of the Matter of Britan. This may be a "childrens" book, but it is better written then a lot of "adult" book I've read.

Only complaint is that Galahad is a bloody bore. But then Galahad is always a bloody bore, so this can't be helped.

All 4 book togeterh should be read by anybody who wants to read about the arthurian stories.

The Story of The Grail and the passing of Arthur is the fourth book of the King Arthur series. I've only read a short bit of it and I think it is an amazing book I've read. I read the first or second book called KING ARTHUR and his Knights and it was outstanding. I think you should about King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. The characters are really brave in this book, and the Knights are also at King Arthur side at the Round Table.

The first half of the book regarding the quest for the holy grail isn't very exciting. It's kind of anti-climactic really. The second half of the book is filled with many betrayals and battles and is a more engaging read.

This was a fun book to read. I definitely wish I had read more of the Arthurian Tales previously. I hope to get the previous 3 books in Pyle's series. The illustrations are nice as well.
