Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok but not great This is an interesting little book. I read it as part of my children’s literature course back in 1999. The book is partially Arthurian Legend, part social commentary and part farce. I did not like the inappropriate references for the time of the story, trains, buses … As well I didn’t appreciate the mixing of Robin Hood (Wood) in the 12th Century with Arthur of the 6th Century. Yet all in all it was a fun book - easy to read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Sword in the Stone I first read this book when I was eleven years old! I'm now much older than that, and this book still holds the same magical presence as it did back then. It is a wonderfully written work of art that is sure to delight readers of every age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! For all you King Arthur fans out there, this 1938 classic is a work of art. This book is filled with Wart's adventure's with Merlyn and beautiful pictures depicting all his adventure's! Can you really resist a classic???
