Synopsis: After young King Arthur's sword breaks in battle, the wizard Merlin sends him through Camelot and the kingdom of the Lady of the Lake in search of Excalibur--the most powerful sword on Earth
From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4-- In her retelling of the story of Excalibur from Malory's Le Morte D'Arthur , Heyer makes some minor alterations, such as changing Sir Pellinore's name to the Black Knight. She also eliminates the ``holdeth's'' and ``hadst thou's'' of Malory's 15th-century prose. She makes a mistake, however, in attempting to show the underwater home of the Lady of the Lake, turning this magical kingdom into an exercise in drawing brightly colored fish that surround the decidedly unmagical-looking castle in the background. Otherwise, her dark and brooding pencil and acrylic illustrations work well with the text. While the book has some flaws, Heyer does an adequate job of presenting a young Arthur, unsure of himself and heavily dependent upon Merlin. A good starting point for younger readers not quite ready for Pyle's The Boy's King Arthur (Scribners, 1989) .
