KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the legend of King Arthur from his birth to his crowning written in the appealing language of the old fashioned fairy tale. On the advice of Merlin the Magician Arthur is set apart from the castle by King Uther. Years later, on the day of the great Tournaments, Sir Ector appears with his sons Kay and Arthur. With Kay in dire need of a sword, Arthur easily lifts the sword from the iron anvil an act only within the capacity of the future king. With this proof of his true identity, Arthur is crowned King and using the magical powers of Merlin assembles the Knights of the Round Table. A charming retelling.
