5.0 out of 5 stars The search for the true king in the strength of the pull of the sword, 28 May 2008
This review is from: Hopscotch Adventures: The Sword In The Stone (Paperback)
from the HOPSCOTCH ADVENTURES series of books.

This is one title from the `Tales of King Arthur' series.

From the back cover:-

`Britain has no king and everyone is fighting each other.
Merlin the magician decides to hold a tournament to find a new king.
But who will be able to pull the sword from the stone?'

32 high quality shiny pages in the popular 2-page spread format.
Numbered pages with clear, easy-to-follow text.
Beautifully illustrated throughout, this delightful book is further enhanced by relevant facial expressions.

Example of text:-

`Once there was a time when war raged everywhere in Britain.
Britain did not have a king, and the people were unhappy.
Merlin the magician knew that a strong king could stop the fighting.
So, Merlin put a special sword in a block of stone.
"There will be a tournament to find a king," he cried. "Every knight must try to pull out this sword."....'

But there is more than strength at the centre of this mission, as the true king is found and the people in the land are happy again at the end!

Lots of action packed into 31 pages!
