Fans of King Arthur will enjoy this new version of the story told with a lot of humor and heart. There’s a lot of action as Sir Gawain battles his foes, but it also talks about why vows were so important in Sir Gawain's time and why Arthur valued manners in knights as much as their fighting skills. The pictures show the action and provide additional humor. A great book to read aloud or for students looking for an early chapter book to read themselves.
