About the Author:

Howard Pyle (1853-1911) was a celebrated artist, author, and teacher -- and a primary figure in the history of children's literature. Not only did he guide and inspire such artistic talents as N. C. Wyeth, Maxfield Parrish, and Jessie Willcox Smith, but he was also a master storyteller in his own right. The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood, Pepper & Salt, and The Wonder Clock are among the many stories and folktales that he wrote and illustrated.

From AudioFile:

The exalted language of Pyle's The Story of King Arthur and His Knights has been criticized for being "pseudo-medieval." In print the text may seem so, but not when Ian Richardson reads it. His eloquent narration is inspiring, and the sentences roll off his tongue. In addition, the reading is enhanced by the sound of fanfares at the beginning of each adventure and by organ music and a celestial choir as Galahad kneels before the Holy Grail in the minster. Audio just doesn't get any better than this. J.C. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
