I don't like Arthurian stuff. I just don't. It's messy and tragic and all those knights are confusing and I had a bad run-in with the literary symbolism of Sir Gawain in college and if you read the older stories the language is impossible and if you read the new ones they sound dumb....you get the point.
But. I have found an Arthurian series I like. In fact, I laughed myself sick (literally, since I had a bad cough when I first read this and laughing set it off. very painful). And it's a beginning chapter book! Not enough of them around, especially good funny ones like this!
All I'll say is that it involves shiny armor, love-sick ladies, and afternoon naps....
Verdict: Not to be read while drinking milk.
