Publisher's Summary

Many years ago, the storytellers say, the great King Arthur brought justice to England with the help of his gallant Knights of the Round Table.

Sir Lancelot the Great

Of these worthy knights, there was never one so fearless, so chivalrous, so honorable, so…shiny as the dashing Sir Lancelot, who was quite good at defending the helpless and protecting the weak, just as long as he’d had his afternoon nap.

Sir Givret the Short

Poor Givret: His size makes him so easy to overlook. But there’s more to knighthood than height, and before long, Givret’s quick thinking lands him a place at the famous Round Table!

Sir Gawain the True

The knights didn’t always act quite as gallantly as a true knight should. Even King Arthur’s nephew, known at that time as Sir Gawain the Undefeated, was too full of himself to accept a token of thanks from a rescued princess! Someone needed to teach Sir Gawain that courtesy and friendship are just as important as strength and courage.

Sir Balin the Ill-Fated

While most of King Arthur’s knights freely chose a life of duty, for Sir Balin the Ill-Fated, destiny was foretold in a prophecy. Still, no matter how dire the task, a loyal and gallant knight never refuses adventure!

Lively, engaging, and smart

I'm giving these stories to my nephews and nieces, but I also got a copy for myself. These are funny, lively, and inspire a second--or even a third--thought. They're well-informed by older versions of the Arthurian stories, without being one bit stuffy.

Three cheers for Steve West's excellent performance, and at least a dozen cheers for Gerald Morris's great storytelling. His scholarship gives his stories life and backbone, but his exuberant imagination and his smart, perceptive characters make them sparkle.

Light hearted knight tales.

I really enjoyed these stories. They were light and humorous and there were no major tragedies to leave you feeling depressed.

A gem! Whole family enjoyed it!

We listened with our 3 boys ages 9-14 and even the adults were chuckling at times! Made time pass quickly on a road trip and my kids immediately asked if there was another book in this series. I would say this is ok for ages 5+ as there is no peril that isn't lighthearted which comes to a good end. Clean, decent, entertaining!

Very funny, narrator excellent

My children, 10 and 12, loved these tales. They were so clever and funny and entertaining the narrator did a wonderful job with different voices. There is an unfortunate emphasis on how beautiful the ladies are, but that was true of all fairy tales of the past.

Daring battles, Evil Dragons, and the Green Knight

This is very well done, bringing the Arthurian ledgends to colorful life. The narration is amazing, and he did the accents of the different characters very well, It is written so that you can easily put the book down, and pick right back up where you left off, although, it's not very likely you would put this collection down until you had read it from cover to cover. With the perfect amount of slapstick humor, as well as enough action to grab anyone's attention, I would reccomend this book to you.

LOYALTY TO THE KING IS NOT A MATTER OF PERSONAL PREFERENCE!!!
