Tales of King Arthur

 I just happened to stop by the local bookstore next to our new library and came across this exciting book full of fantasy and adventure. Our son-in-law teaches 7th grade and this is a great addition for any home or school library. This book is sure to attract the reluctant reader, too. The illustrations by Rodney Matthews are exciting as well. I am a huge fan of holding a book in your hands and enjoying the magic and creativity that sparks one's imagination and thirst of curiosity to find out what happens next and how it all is going to work out in the end! This is a good one. In fact, I think this is my first Usborne book.

Tales of King Arthur (Usborne Classics Retold)

Here's my Page 56:

"Through the mountains and Valleys of wales,
To the Forest of Wirral beyond,
At the place called the Green Chapel,
There we will seal our bond."
From: Tales of King Arthur -- retold by  Felicity Brooks
