An adequate introduction to the Arthurian legend! 30 Aug. 2004
By Amanda Carrell - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've always been fascinated with all things Arthurian and so I picked up _The Story of King Arthur_ by Tom Crawford. Included in this book are stories of the Sword in the Stone, the Round Table, Sir Lancelot, Morgan le Fay, Merlin, Guenevere and much more. I feel this book would be a nice way to introduce children to the legend. It contains just enough magic and daring exploits to keep them interested. It would also be satisfactory for older children or adults who want to reacquaint themselves with the tale. Though certainly not the best I've seen, the illustrations were nice and used in such a way as to bring the story to life while not taking from it. All in all, a pleasant, quick read at a great price.

What Awful Writing! 29 Oct. 2004
By C. Jackson - Published on
Format: Paperback
While the aurthian content is there, I can't imagine a worse job of trying to write for children. This is the ultimate in talking down to kids. I could barely get through it because the writing was so uninspired. There is nothing of the glory of the legend here, it is all merely plot and badly done at that. I bought it, then threw it out rather than give it to my kids.

I Read King Arthur by Tom Crawford 16 Feb. 2007
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
The book I read is about many kings, queens, and knights. The greatest of all time was Sir Lancelot. He never lost one battle. He was a great and noble knight. He knew a queen named Guenevere who got very sick. Could Sir Lanelot get there in time to see Queen Guenevere before she died? If he didn't he would probably feel very bad. The Queen died and Sir Lancelot was a half an hour late. After that emotional blow Sir Lancelot had no reason to live. He stopped eating and died. Many knights wept and wept. THE END!!!!!!! My connection is that I have lost a loved one too.
