5.0 out of 5 stars Step through a stained glass window into the medieval world. 10 April 2000
By MLPlayfair - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is, quite simply, a beautiful book. I wish it had been a little longer! The story, as the author admits at the end, comes right out of the Malory version of the Arthurian legend, which is perhaps the best known. This story, therefore, comes as no surprise to those of us who love King Arthur. The surprise here is in the illustrations. He has put us into the medieval tale in a new way by illustrating the story with stained glass windows. Well, that's how they look, anyway. And we are drawn through them into Arthur's time. Sabuda admits that he wrote and illustrated this one especially for the boys, and I can see how it would appeal to them. But there's nothing here that would turn off a girl's interest, either.
Sabuda is well known for his amazing pop-up books, and I have copies of all of them. I'm glad I've added this book to my collection. Although it's not a pop-up, it's a very interesting concept, and it's beautifully executed. I know the kids will love it! END

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 21 Jun. 2000
By Frank Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Library Binding
The stained glass window illustrations and simple, straightforward text allow readers to learn about young King Arthur. This book is a staple for me each year, as I read it to my second graders. Each year they love it! Sabuda provides a cool author's note too! Sabuda is a gifted storyteller/book creator!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stained Glass Art 31 Aug. 2013
By Fan of Time-Life Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As stated on the front cover, Arthur and the Sword is a re-telling of how Arthur became king of England. What sets this book apart is the spectacular art supplementing the narrative. The stained glass paintings are reminiscent of what one would see in a cathedral from the Middle Ages and are very fitting and appropriate to the story. Moreover, the vibrant colors bring the story to life. The book concludes with some notes about the literary origins of the King Arthur story. This book is ideal for younger readers and is a great introduction to Arthurian literature.

3.0 out of 5 stars Misread Description 10 April 2013
By Jeff Mugford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was under the impression that this was a pop-up book like every other Robert Sabuta book. Unfortunatly, this book is pictures only. The artwork is impressive, but not what i was expecting.
