This book tells of the earlier years of King Arthur as he became the King of Great Britain and fought the rebellion that broke out soon after. Once he was able to beat the rebellion, he returned home, married his princess, and created the Knights of the Round Table. The book goes into some detain about the battles, so it may be complicated for young readers. This book is a folktale: once again, it is a classic battle of good and evil, with a courageous man fighting to stop the bad, get the girl, and create safety and a legacy. Watercolors were primarily used in the illustrations. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0688113400, Hardcover)

As a lad of only sixteen years, Arthur pulled the sword from the stone and thus became High King of all Britain. But scarcely has he begun to arrange his court when twelve of the country's lesser kings, jealous of Arthur's glory, declare war on him.

Culminating in the Battle of Bedegraine, this war is fateful in more ways than one--for not only does it secure Arthur's place among his people, it also unites his destiny with that of Lady Guinevere.

In this, the second volume of his Tales of King Arthur series, Hudson Talbott masterfully retells the saga of Arthur's early days as leader of Britain, his building of Camelot, and the dedication of the Round Table--a unique brotherhood of knights devoted to unity and peace.

Hudson Talbott's thrilling text and dazzling paintings bring this tale of heroism, romance, and pageantry to life. The scenes of daring battle and the splendor of Arthur's court are re, produced here in glorious full color for readers to turn to again and again.
