Still one of the best stories ever written for children and young people, and my favourite retelling of the Arthurian legend. A delight to read to my kids at bedtime. Pyle's illustrations are beautifully elegant, whimsical, and refined in style. Revisiting this series again for the first time since childhood. ( )

I like heroic fiction. And as one raised in an culture descended from England, King Arthur is one of my favorite mythical heroes. I've picked up a variety of retellings of the legends of Camelot and this is my latest acquisition. Written for children, it was originally published in 1903 and, according to the scholarly afterward, is a rather American flavored retelling of the legend. I can see that, as the knights are all very individualistic and self sufficient. The book focuses on Arthur: how he became king, how he gained Excalibur and won the hand of Guinevere, among other tales. The stories are rather simplistic and the characters are all stereotypes, but for some reason it's fun and I had quite a good time reading it. (Though I have to admit, towards the end, as yet another joust was being proposed, I was hoping that some lowly squire would break character and say, "you know, there are less painful ways to settle differences.") If you like Arthur at all (the king, not D.W.'s brother), I would suggest you check it out.

Good examples of Howard Pyle's illustration. Pyle is in the artistic lineage of William Sautés Bock, who attended Philadelphia School of Art ( )

A bedtime story book that I read aloud to my eight-year-old. I found it a lot less stuffy than the collection by Roger Lancelyn Green that I read to my older son some years back. The language was very stylized, and there were a few phrases that it took my brain several chapters before it stopped trying to replace "missing" words -- but it didn't seem to borrow my kid at all.

We thoroughly enjoyed this, and if I ever get around to picking up a kid-appropriate grail story, I'm sure that I'll look for Pyle's version. ( )

In ancient days there lived a very noble King, named Uther-Pendragon, and he became Overlord of all of Britain.
Foreword:  After several years of conntemplation and of thought upon the matter herein contained, it has at last come about, by the Grace of God, that I have been able to write this work with such pleasure of spirit that, if it gives to you but a part of the joy that it hath afforded me, I shall be very well content with what I have done

Thus died that wicked man, for as King Arthur drave past him, the evil soul of him quitted his body with a weak noise like to the squeaking of a bat, and the world was well rid of him.

This the original Howard Pyle adaptation of Malory's Morte Darthur. It has been reprinted many times, sometimes under slightly varying titles. There have been many adaptations and abrigements of Pyle's version. Do not combine them with the original. Do not combine any of Pyle's other Arthurian works or omnibus editions. Do not combine with other books of the same title or other retellings of Malory.
