From the legendary king's boyhood to his final departure to Avalon, John Matthews' Arthur of Albion sweeps you right into the legends and stories of Arthur, Merlin, Excalibur, the Round Table, the Grail and the Knights and Ladies of his court. Pavel Tatarnikov's fantastic illustrations bring the characters and lands to life with a truly mystical ambience. Combining adventure with intrigue, romance with conflict, and mystery with magic, this magnificent book will enthral children and storytellers alike. Read alone: ages 8 to adult, read together: ages 6 to 10.
