Young Arthur spends his days toiling as a squire--feeding the horses and hauling his big brother's armor. Around him, England is in turmoil, left without a king. But all that changes in one day, with one pull on the mysterious sword in the stone. Guided by Merlin the Magician, Arthur takes his place as the rightful heir to England's throne.

Editorial Reviews

"Along with 'celebrity' heroes like Hercules and King Arthur, these mythology-based titles delve into less obvious areas, focusing on figures such as Atalanta, Ali Baba, Isis and Osiris, and Sunjata, a warrior king of Mali. This mythological series is among the most varied and mixes fast-paced storytelling with pertinent historical facts, further reading lists, glossaries, maps, and pronunciation guides. A fun, inviting way to introduce students to the beliefs and histories of other cultures." --Book Links
