Arthur, High King of Britain
Glorious adventure fills every page of Michael Morpurgo’s majestic novel recounting the life of England’s most celebrated legendary hero: Arthur, the warrior king.

There is the great and tragic love between Arthur and Queen Guinevere, and the curse of evil Morgana Le Fey, who is plotting to kill him…
