Publisher's Summary

Sinead is on holiday from Ireland, visiting a castle in England. There, the famous sword Excalibur is on display, and tourists flock to have their picture taken trying to pull it out of the stone.

Astonishingly, when it comes to Sinead's turn, the sword comes free. Soon the crowds are shouting, "All hail Queen Sinead!"

The Prince of England, however, is very worried about this shocking development, and makes Sinead an offer she can't refuse.

Or can she?

Sinead's fun encounter with Merlin and Arthurian magic is also a real test of her character.

Great Premise!

Great premise. What if a young Irish girl pulled Excalibur from the stone today? Of course, you have to accept the premise that Excalibur exists as a tourist attraction for selfies, and that no one else can withdraw the stone. Sinéad meets Merlin and has to decide what she wants from the power she’s gained. Ideal for the 10 – 14 age group, I’d say.

A Fantastic Adventure!

A good adventure with Arthurian elements. It also has a warm relationship between Sinéad and her mother at the heart of it. I don’t think the current British royal family would like it though!
