More About the Author


Linda Proud is an English author best known for her novels set in Renaissance Italy. She was a freelance picture researcher before teaching creative writing to US students studying in Oxford, UK, which she did for twenty years, working mainly for Sarah Lawrence College. Her first novel, "A Tabernacle for the Sun", won a bursary from Southern Arts and and a month's residence at the writers' retreat of Hawthornden Castle. It was published by Allison and Busby in 1997. The Botticelli Trilogy has drawn praise from authors and academics as well as the general reader, and is considered as best of its kind by many reviewers, including Lonely Planet Guide to Florence and Tuscany: 'The historical detail in all three is exemplary, and each is a cracking good read.'

In 2003 she and her husband, David Smith, founded Godstow Press. Currently she is working on a new series of novels set in Iron Age Britain.

Review

There is nothing like this on the market. I warmly recommend it. -- NATE News (National Association for Teaching of English)

Synopsis

Once upon a time about now a lonely little boy is out walking when he sees a dog get run over. No-one can help until a strange man comes running to the rescue. He is Sir Bedivere, a knight of King Arthur, pulled out of the Otherworld to help an animal in distress. To get back home, he must tell his Tales, all twenty-one of them. Each day the boy meets the knight to hear about Arthur, Gwinhavar, Lancelot, the evil Mordred, the strange Questing Beast, Merlin, the fool Parsifal and the quest for the Holy Grail. Meanwhile, out on the allotments, vandals are at work. Can a tale of yesterday be of any use today? And what is the mysterious Grail? This special edition in hardback of Linda Proud's mystical stories drawn from Arthurian legend is superbly illustrated by Roderick Freemantle of Cape Town. Produced to the highest standards on fine paper with 40 two-colour pictures, it is a book to delight readers of all ages. Listening to these stories, which are intended to be read out loud, the child will have the experience of hearing, touching and seeing a very beautiful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks great! 8 Mar 2011
By Maggie
Format:Hardcover
After a long delivery time, we have not gotten around to reading much of the book, but it looks beautiful!
I am so looking forward to reading the chapters with our six year old, the drawings are sparing, which I like, as it encourages imagination of the reader/ listener and the written text looks great, perfect for bringing the Arthurian legend to the young child, which is divided in perfect sized chapters.
I am very excited about this book and wish there would be more of these available.
