I loved this, though I was a little disappointed that some of the gorier parts weren't illustrated. This is pretty text-heavy for a picture book, and some of the themes are, shall we say, a little mature. Though some of the plot elements were clearly softened for this format. I'm not sure if this book is as age-appropriate is it appears, but not all picture books are for the young 'uns.

This was my first encounter with this story, and I really needed something like this to help me familiarize myself with the classic story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. Because that pretty little King Arthur book that I purchased over ten years ago isn't going to read itself. I enjoyed the story, and the illustrations were beautifully rendered. ( )
