About the Author:

Former Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo needs no introduction. He is one of the most successful children's authors in the country, loved by children, teachers and parents alike. Michael has written more than forty books for children including the global hit War Horse, which was made into a Hollywood film by Steven Spielberg in 2011. Several of his other stories have been adapted for screen and stage, including My Friend Walter, Why the Whales Came and Kensuke's Kingdom. Michael has won the Whitbread Award, the Smarties Award, the Circle of Gold Award, the Children's Book Award and has been short-listed for the Carnegie Medal four times. He started the charity Farms for City Children in 1976 with his wife, Clare, aimed at relieving the "poverty of experience" many young children feel in inner city and urban areas. Michael is also a patron of over a dozen other charities. Living in Devon, listening to Mozart and working with children have provided Michael with the ideas and incentive to write his stories. He spends half his life mucking out sheds with the children, feeding sheep or milking cows; the other half he spends dreaming up and writing stories for children. "For me, the greater part of writing is daydreaming, dreaming the dream of my story until it hatches out - the writing down of it I always find hard. But I love finishing it, then holding the book in my hand and sharing my dream with my readers." Michael received an OBE in December 2006 for his services to literature.

From Booklist:

Gr. 4^-7. Morpurgo's retelling of nine familiar stories about Arthur Pendragon and the Knights of the Round Table is beautifully presented and certain to attract browsers. It is Morpurgo's faithfulness to the original stories, however, and the fine writing that captures all the adventure, drama, and tragedy that will engage readers. Arthur himself tells the tales to a 12-year-old boy, who awakes in Arthur's cave after atempting to walk the seabed to the Eastern Isles. As the boy recovers, he learns how Arthur became king, hears the legend of Excalibur and the adventures of the knights, and finds out about the end of Camelot. Although the Green Knight appears in armor when he is described wearing different attire, Foreman's hazy watercolors are usually a perfect complement to the dreamy, bygone-times quality of the stories. Arthurian retellings abound, but libraries should consider adding Morpurgo's admirable narrative to their collections. Chris Sherman
