In these wonderfully illustrated tales, renowned storyteller Howard Pyle carries us back to the enchanting world of King Arthur and his Round table. The book chronicles the adventures of Arthur as he draws the sword from the anvil, proving his right to the throne, and as he courts and wins the heart of Guinevere. Later he suffers the treachery of the wicked Morgana le Fay and witnesses the tragic fate of Merlin the Magician. The legend comes alive in Pyle's classic retelling, the unsurpassed children's version of the Round table tales. More powerful than any of Merlin's spells, The Story of King Arthur and His Knights has enthralled and delighted generations of readers fascinated by chivalry, magic, and the unforgettable drama of medieval times.
