Book1: Sir Lancelot the Great; Book2: Sir Givret the Short; Book3: Sir Gawain the True; Book4: Sir Balin the Ill-Fated Many years ago, the storytellers say, the great King Arthur brought justice to England with the help of his gallant Knights of the Round Table. Sir Lancelot the Great Of these worthy knights, there was never one so fearless, so chivalrous, so honorable, so...shiny as the dashing Sir Lancelot, who was quite good at defending the helpless and protecting the weak, just as long as he'd had his afternoon nap. Sir Givret the Short Poor Givret: his size makes him so easy to overlook. But there's more to knighthood than height, and before long, Givret's quick thinking lands him a place at the famous Round Table! Sir Gawain the True The knights didn't always act quite as gallantly as a true knight should. Even King Arthur's nephew, known at that time as Sir Gawain the Undefeated, was too full of himself to accept a token of thanks from a rescued princess! Someone needed to teach Sir Gawain that courtesy and friendship are just as important as strength and courage. Sir Balin the Ill-Fated While most of King Arthur's knights freely chose a life of duty, for Sir Balin the Ill-Fated, destiny was foretold in a prophecy. Still, no matter how dire the task, a loyal and gallant knight never refuses adventure!

Highly recommend this collection of humorous adventure stories. A bit of a Monty Python approach to the legends of King Arthur's Court. Appropriate for all ages. My 10 year old son and I both loved this book. I especially recommend the audiobook version. The reader's acting talents make the book even more funny and entertaining.

This is average fan fiction. Unfortunately, I was expecting classic tales for the Round Table that I might have previously missed.--this is not the case.
