This book really is beautiful It summarizes the basics of the Arthurian story for children This has the distinct advantage of getting Malory s story without having to slog through Malory or the depressing parts of White though White s cleverness is also missing Naturally a good deal is glossed over even the best can only do so much in 38 pages but it is a good introduction and would probably make children interested in reading The best part of this book is the art The illustrations are nice in themselves but the floral borders on every page make it feel sumptuous to read As the story progresses the borders change from spring flowers to summer berries to winter holly Non story pages are bordered in daisies with what else red dragons If you run across this volume be sure to look at every page False Pretences you run across this volume be sure to look at every page

Merlin and the Making of the King Free download Ü 105 In this collection of three exciting Arthurian legends Merlin the magician watches over young Arthur as he rises to become king of all England But many threats befall Arthur in the kingdom of Camelot the evil witch. This was a rather choppy and short retelling of the Winchester manuscript of the story of King Arthur for young readers I understand that for such a short version of the massively complicated story there isn t a lot of room for character development or dialogue but I felt that some of the notable characters should have been properly introduced instead of sprung up when the story called for them with a bit of backstory information I understand that the author left out Uther s rape of Ingraine but instead made it look like he was a bloodthirsty ruler But the author made it look like Uther gave up Arthur simply because Merlin asked him to Arthur s friendship with Merlin is shallow in this book The villains or antagonist of the stories played such small and rushed parts that we hardly noticed them or their deeds and then they were defeated so uickly that we hardly noticed their demise This retelling seemed a bit dull and meaningless because it lost it s magical elements in each part of the story when it was summarized into three short parts The Sword in the Stone Exaclibur and The Lady of the Lake Also the illustrations were uite lacking and didn t make up for the shortcomings of the stories

    EBOOK / KINDLE (Merlin and the Making of the King) By Margaret Hodges I realize that the Arthurian cycle is enormous and complex and could not possible all fit in a short book for young readers However I don't think editing the entire reign of Arthur down to a few incidents is at all beneficial Here the story seems meaningless; there is no emotional content and we are told nothing

    EBOOK / KINDLE (Merlin and the Making of the King) By Margaret Hodges That was a severely shortened and chopped up telling of King Arthur I understand it’s intended for children but had I read this as a child I would not have been interested in learning about this legend and I absolutely love and adore the legend of King Arthur The illustrations were amazing and is the saving grace for this review I just wish they had been bigger to fully take in and appreciate them
