The epic story of King Arthur comes to life in a new book-plus-audio edition.
In King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, young Arthur is as surprised as anyone the day he pulls the mysterious sword from the stone and becomes the king of England! The wizard Merlin leads him to assemble his knights, including brave Sir Lancelot and pure Sir Galahad. Arthur and his knights undertake many quests to bring peace to the kingdom and uphold justice for all. But all the while, the evil Morgana le Fay and Mordred plot to overthrow Arthur and rule the kingdom. Soon Arthur enters a terrible battle . . . for his kingdom, and his life.
King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table is read by Sean Bean, who appeared as Boromir in The Lord of the Rings.

Benedict Flynn's imaginative retellings of classic stories have reintroduced characters such as King Arthur and Robin Hood to a new generation of children. He lives in Great Britain.Review:
[...] I persuaded them [my children] to try one last story: King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table read by Sean Bean. Written by Benedict Flynn, this is part of Naxos AudioBooks' series billed as 'Classical Literature with Classical Music'. [...] Within minutes, silence descended. I'd like to say this was because they were entranced by the story, but it had more to do with Sean Bean's voice. For two and a half hours, they were spellbound - and, of course, the moment it ended, they wanted to listen to the whole thing again. The only interruption was when Sasha complained that Benedict Flynn had got the story wrong. "Merlin isn't an old man," she scoffed. "He's a teenage boy." It took all my persuasive powers to convoke her that the version of the legend we were listening to predated the BBC television series named after the wizard. --Toby Young, The Spectator
