Wilkinson's modern adaptation of the King Arthur story is not only clever but also very funny. No one is more surprised than Arthur King when he finds himself "reincarnated" as the legendary King Arthur. Along with his friends (who also possess Arthurian names), Arthur fights to save Albion Woods from developers. Narrator Steven Pacey brilliantly presents each charming young character and the police chief, who sings to detainees and metes out punishments that include singing. Pacey is given a chance to demonstrate his considerable singing skills. This delightful story was meant to be read, and Steven Pacey is the perfect person to do it. S.G.B.
