"On a peaceful day in the kingdom of Camelot, Merlin and King Arthur are racing their horses. The day takes a turn for the unusual when a knight in black unknowingly challenges King Arthur to a fight. The stronger and swifter knight fights a good fight, and then destroys Arthur’s sword. Merlin uses magic to cast the black knight into a sleep. They escape and take time to heal. Merlin leads Arthur to the Lady of the Lake, where he is introduced to his new weapon, Excalibur. Arthur accepts the sword with the condition to use it only for good. Upon return to the kingdom, Arthur is once again challenged to a fight with the black knight. After a long battle, Arthur wins, and exercises goodwill and spares the knight. With engaging and beautiful illustrations, the folklore and legend of Arthur are retold in a manner that will have children demanding many rereads. The mysticism of Merlin and the honor of knighthood are charming threads. This is a fantastic book to read aloud, and the narrative elements are easy to understand. This green level “Read It Reader” also has an excellent web link on the last page to extend reading opportunities." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
