A review by The Girl (age 11)
In a world of wizards, giants, and dragons, King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table are the kingdom of Camelot’s only defense against the threatening forces of evil. Fighting battles and saving those in need, the Knights of the Round Table can defeat every enemy but one — themselves! (publisher’s summary)
King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table is a graphic novel that retells Sir Thomas Malory’s story of King Arthur. I really liked the illustrations because they drew you in to the story with their detail and color. I thought the story was really interesting, and I loved the character of Merlin because he was so mysterious. I also liked that there were maps and information about the legends of King Arthur in the back of the book.
King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table didn’t make my list of favorite graphic novels, but it was still pretty good. It was hard for me to understand sometimes because I didn’t know anything about King Arthur but the story of the sword in the stone. I think you should know more to really get this book.
Disclosure: The Girl borrowed King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table from the public library.
