In this splendid retelling of the legend of King Arthur, James Riordan captures the magical and mysterious kingdom of Camelot. The magician Merlin, the sword Excalibur, the Lady of the Lake, the beautiful Guinevere, the knights of the Round Table, Lancelot, the Green Knight, and all of the other characters from Camelot spring to life in Victor Ambrus's colorful recreations of the lost world of King Arthur. Beginning when the evil Vortigern poisons his father, The Story of King Arthur follows young Arthur's escape in the arms of the magician Merlin, his education as a knight, and coronation as king after he pulls the sword from the stone, and his reign over Camelot amongst the Knights of the Round Table.
