The epic story of King Arthur comes to life in a new book-plus-audio edition.

In King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, young Arthur is as surprised as anyone the day he pulls the mysterious sword from the stone and becomes the king of England! The wizard Merlin leads him to assemble his knights, including brave Sir Lancelot and pure Sir Galahad. Arthur and his knights undertake many quests to bring peace to the kingdom and uphold justice for all. But all the while, the evil Morgana le Fay and Mordred plot to overthrow Arthur and rule the kingdom. Soon Arthur enters a terrible battle . . . for his kingdom, and his life.

King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table is read by Sean Bean, who appeared as Boromir in The Lord of the Rings.
