Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

By Michael Morpurgo
Illustrated by Michael Foreman

The classic Arthurian legend is brilliantly recreated by an award-winning author/illustrator team.

Of all the tales of the Knights of the Round Table, the story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is surely the most magical. Here are thrills and enchantment, chivalry and courage, a challenge and a quest. Its hero is the greatest of all King Arthur s knights, Sir Gawain. His adversary is the fearsome Green Knight, who rides into Camelot one New Year s Eve with a challenge that strikes dread into Arthur s court. For Gawain, it is the start of an extraordinary adventure.

  • "With Morpurgo s expert retelling and Foreman s masterly spread - either eerily atmospheric or packing a dramatic punch - this is quite perfect." - The Children s Bookseller
