The extraordinary story of a boy called Wart - ignored by everyone except his tutor, Merlin - who goes on to become King Arthur. T.H White?masterful retelling of the Arthurian legend is an abiding classic. Here for the first time all five volumes that make up the story are published in one volume, as White himself always wished. Exquisite comedy offsets the tragedy of Arthur?personal doom as White brings to life the major British epic of all time with brilliance, grandeur, warmth and charm.
White's retelling of the King Arthur legends first appeared in the late 1930s and, although it wasn't originally intended for a young readership it has become immensely popular with children. There is some gore, however, so older children may appreciate it most. (Kirkus UK)
