Children Ages 10+ • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

Together Crossley-Holland and Maloney portray the Arthurian legend in a unique manner. The story is completely true to its medieval setting; however, it also offers today's young listeners a historical novel that can be fully enjoyed. The vocabulary is appropriate to its time, while Maloney's modern delivery adds to the overall pleasure. We follow young Arthur de Caldicott (King Arthur's namesake) as he prepares for the Fourth Crusade, learns his duties, and says farewell to those he loves. Intrigue is added as we observe his encounters with those who wish him ill. All of these components create an excellent listening experience for any medieval or Arthurian fan. S.G.B.
