    Arthur of Albion A retelling of the Arthurian Legend by John Matthews.This gave me a much needed recap, very brief and superficial but like still potent, about the much loved Arthurian legend Spanning over 130 pages with landscape illustrations at regular intervals with Merlin, Lancelot, Arthur and the adventures of the Knights of the round table depicted are a pleasure to the eye As far as I know, the st

    This made it into the real aloud pile and managed to supplant the greatly loved and often read D Aullaires Norse Myths Did not hurt that we watched The Sword in the Stone Disney video and a Ted Ed video about the Arthur legends before we dug into this The stories are abridged, and the prose is understandable for a child, but these are not modernized or expurgated versions of the stories This fidelity to the original versio

    Beautiful, thoughtful, and great for a middle reader I appreciated Matthews care for including the many women of the Arthurian mythos not merely as props to the stories of the male figures but as characters with motivations in their own right Super medieval, though, very much describing the romances of Arthur and the Matter of Britain.

    Reason for Reading I love the old Arthurian Tales of Camelot and the Knights of the Round Table Which this book is FYI, I m not so fond of modern retellings, only if they involve Arthur as a boy or focus on Merlin as the main character.This book was published a couple years ago in an oversized picture book format which I am sure is simply breath taking and would be the edition you would want if you want to read this aloud to younger children or even a group of childr

    I read this book with my son who enjoys King Arthur legends The book s format alternates b t descriptions of the elements of different lengands, such as small write ups of thefamous knight or other characters, and the actual legends.The pictures in the book are magnificent and their style fits the legends perfectly The stories were a little tough for my five year old to understand and required a lot of explaining so it is better suited for older fans of Arthur Still, a lovely
