Kindergarten-Grade 2–The books in this level of the series claim to present more challenging ideas, a broad vocabulary range, and expanded sentence structure. Sword in the Stone and Golden Arrow are choppy. The more complex sentence structures implement the use of simple words effectively but, when interspersed with the many short sentences, result in a disjointed feel. Black Knight and Tricky Butcher flow better and have more character development. Still, all of the tales are stripped down to bare bones and lose much of the backstories, adventure, and charm. Mato has the boys lost and stranded on the top of the tower, then flashes forward to their adulthood, leaving readers to wonder how they got out of their predicament. Layout is the same in all of the books: text at the top of most pages and colorful illustrations filling in the rest of the space. The best use of these titles would be as introductions to the legends for slow or reluctant readers. Children already at this reading level might be better served by picture-book versions of the tales, such as Robert San Souci's Young Arthur (Doubleday, 1997). It's a bit more difficult, but it has a more engaging story.–Kelly Roth, Bartow County Public Library, Cartersville, GA
