‘In those empty chairs you see about the Round Table, there once sat a company of knights, the finest, bravest men the world has ever seen. And they were my friends too. I’ll tell you about them…’
Marooned on a sandbank, a boy faces certain death. With the sea closing in and the current about to drag him to a watery grave, his final wish is to see heaven. Waking in a strange bed, the boy meets an old man sitting by the fire with his dog. It is Arthur, the great warrior king of legend, and from his lips the boy hears of Camelot, chivalry, magic, evil and betrayal.
This extraordinary re-telling of the stories of the legendary King Arthur and his knights features stunning full colour illustrations from award-winning illustrator Michael Foreman.
