Author(s): T. H. White
This abridgement of the first novel in The Once and Future King, the tale of King Arthur and the rise and fall of Camelot, is specifically aimed at 7-12 year olds. It concentrates on the early years of Arthur's life, leading to his proclamation as king. White elaborated imaginatively on the legend, giving strong personalities to the main characters - as well as animals! Neville Jason gives another strong reading.
