I got really excited when I saw this because it looked like it was done by not only the same illustrator whom I adore but also by the same author as my childhood Saint George book Right on both countsUnfortunately while beautiful this one doesn t hold together as well as a story as Saint George I think that s partially the nature of the story being adapted it s impressive to pull from Malory but Malory is ginormous The Heartbroken Heartbreaker really excited when I saw this because it looked like it was done by not only the same illustrator whom I adore but also by the same author as my childhood Saint George book Right on both countsUnfortunately while beautiful this one doesn t hold together as well as a story as Saint George I think that s partially the nature of the story being adapted it s impressive to pull from Malory but Malory is ginormous

Merlin and the Making of the King review È 3 In this collection of three exciting Arthurian legends Merlin the magician watches over young Arthur as he rises to become king of all England But many threats befall Arthur in the kingdom of Camelot the evil witch. This was a rather choppy and short retelling of the Winchester manuscript of the story of King Arthur for young readers I understand that for such a short version of the massively complicated story there isn t a lot of room for character development or dialogue but I felt that some of the notable characters should have been properly introduced instead of sprung up when the story called for them with a bit of backstory information I understand that the author left out Uther s rape of Ingraine but instead made it look like he was a bloodthirsty ruler But the author made it look like Uther gave up Arthur simply because Merlin asked him to Arthur s friendship with Merlin is shallow in this book The villains or antagonist of the stories played such small and rushed parts that we hardly noticed them or their deeds and then they were defeated so uickly that we hardly noticed their demise This retelling seemed a bit dull and meaningless because it lost it s magical elements in each part of the story when it was summarized into three short parts The Sword in the Stone Exaclibur and The Lady of the Lake Also the illustrations were uite lacking and didn t make up for the shortcomings of the stories
