Arthur, High King of Britain
Rated 4/5 from 5 ratings
As the sea sweeps in, a boy is cut off in his attempt to walk round the Scilly Isles. Having given up hope of survival, he finds himself waking beside a warm fire with a man, Arthur Pendragon, who has rescued him. As the seawater dries from the boy’s clothes, Arthur tells him the incredible story of his life. His tale begins when he pulls the sword Excalibur from a stone, and continues as he battles to save England from the Saxons, sets up the celebrated court at Camelot, and fights with the brave knights of the Round Table. There is the great and tragic love between Arthur and Queen Guinevere, and the curse of evil Morgana Le Fey, who is plotting to kill him… Glorious adventure fills every page of Michael Morpurgo’s majestic novel recounting the life of England’s most celebrated legendary hero: Arthur, the warrior king.
