Arthur, High King of Britain

Arthur, High King of Britain

Glorious adventure fills every page of Michael Morpurgo’s majestic novel recounting the life of England’s most celebrated legendary hero: Arthur, the warrior king.

As the sea sweeps in, a boy is cut off in his attempt to walk round the Scilly Isles. Having given up hope of survival, he awakens beside a warm fire with a man, Arthur Pendragon, who has rescued him. As the seawater dries from the boy’s clothes, Arthur tells him the incredible story of his life. His tale begins when he pulls the sword Excalibur from a stone, and continues as he sets up the celebrated court at Camelot, fighting great battles with the brave knights of the Round Table. There is the great and tragic love between Arthur and Queen Guinevere, and the curse of evil Morgana Le Fey, who is plotting to kill him…
