Arthur High King of Britain Paperback

5 out of 5 (1 rating)


An enchanting take on the legend of King Arthur from Britain's best-loved children's author, Michael Morpurgo.

Marooned on a sandbank, a boy faces certain death. With the sea closing in and the current about to drag him to a watery grave, his final wish is to see heaven.

Waking in a strange bed, the boy meets an old man sitting by the fire with his dog.

It is Arthur, the great warrior king of legend, and from his lips the boy hears of Camelot, chivalry, magic, evil and betrayal.

Former Children's Laureate and award-winning author of War Horse, Michael Morpurgo, demonstrates why he is considered to be the master story teller with this Arthurian Legend.
