Many years ago, the storytellers say, the great King Arthur brought justice to England with the help of his gallant Knights of the Round Table.
 
Sir Lancelot the Great
Of these worthy knights, there was never one so fearless, so chivalrous, so honorable, so…shiny as the dashing Sir Lancelot, who was quite good at defending the helpless and protecting the weak, just as long a

On a recent road trip, we listened to the audiobooks, and thoroughly enjoyed them. I am pretty sure I laughed more than my kids, and found it very entertaining.

We loved it, loved it. Gerald Morris is very funny and Steve West was an exceptional narrator. I wish there were ten more stories like these.

I needed a quick read while cleaning the house and this book was a delight. Give it a go, you won't regret it.

Thornbrook with an excellent narrator. It took me a while to get used to the humorous tone, but it is a nice addition to the king Arthur spectrum.

It's a 3 and a half actually, but i really had fun :)

Easily 5 out of 5 stars, this is one of the most delightful reads of the year. Arthurian tales for ages 8 and up, told with much tongue in cheek humor, and very capably narrated by Steve West. These four tales are laugh-out-loud funny. Steve's voices are perfect. I wanted to immediately start over and listen to them all again. Also available as individual stories, the books could be used as a read along for reluctant readers or adult learners. Not just for children!

I loved it! I had no idea what to expect from this book. Looking at the image for the book, I didn't know if it was going to be for grownups or kids. I would have to say both. It has enough to hold a child's interest but it's definitely meant for a grown-up. The narrator is fantastic! He can do any character and sound great. I really liked this story and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys comedy and adventure!

4 1/2 stars. These were SO MUCH FUN! I expected them to be dry, and rather dull. Indeed they are not! So much tongue and cheek humor. The audio books are great. We loved listening to these stories.

Really a very well read and totally engaging audiobook, I definitely recommend it for kids and even older people who think they might like funny stories about King Arthur's knights (not to mention some pretty interesting women, though they are sadly fewer).

I liked the last two books in this collection especially. My whole family enjoyed them. The author has a fun way of handling fate and teaching about manners.

This is such a wonderful series for a young reader. there's adventure and wonder, fantasy without too much violence or gore. And a side of modern wit and humor.

Amusing stories about Arthurian knights, aimed at upper MG/lower YA boys. Clever subversion of some of the values of the traditional myths, so entertaining to this adult, too.
