4.0 out of 5 stars THREE adventures under one cover! 16 Oct 2008
From the 'Usborne Young Reading' series of books, which combines good stories with easy reading text.

'Usborne Young Reading Books are carefully graded into levels: - Series One, Two and Three and cover a wide range of subjects to suit all interests and abilities.'

This particular book is from SERIES ONE, which is aimed at readers who have just started reading alone.
The stories are retold by Jane Bingham.

From the back cover:

'When King Arthur set up his court, hundreds of knights wanted to join him, But they had to fight fierce giants and deadly dragons first.
For only the bravest, strongest and most loyal of knights could sit at the king's Round Table.
Read on for three of their exciting adventures.'

Colourful paperback covers open to 48 high quality matt pages, split into 3 chapters:

1. Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
2. The tale of the kitchen knight
3. Sir Gawain and the Loathly Lady

Numbered pages. Illustrated throughout this book is enhanced by meaningful expressions, easy-to-follow-text and some speech bubbles.

Example of text:

From Chapter 2

'The tale of the kitchen knight

One day, a young stranger arrived at king Arthur's castle.
He had beautiful white hands but his clothes were old and torn.
"I have nowhere to go," he told the king. "Please Sire, may I stay for a year?"
King Arthur liked the look of him, so he agreed.
"Sir Kay can take care of you," he said.
Grumpy Sir Kay was in charge of the kitchens. He sneered at the young boy.
"Hmph! I shall call you Pretty Hands," he said.
"Now let's see how hard you can work."...........'

....and so Pretty Hands set about various kitchen tasks....

This book is great - I love the whole series. Son regularly goes to this book when asked to choose a bedtime story. It is simple enough text that I think he will soon - end reception be able to read some himself, but the stories are interesting and engaing enough for him to want to read them.
