On Order



Retold out of the old romances, this collection of Arthurian tales endeavors to make each adventure--"The Quest for the Round Table, " "The First Quest of Sir Lancelot, " "How the Holy Grail Came to Camelot, " and so forth--part of a fixed pattern that effectively presents the whole story, as it does in Le Morte D'Arthur, but in a way less intimidating to young readers.

Author Notes

Roger Lancelyn Green was born in England in 1918, where his family has lived for more than 900 years. He was often sick as a child and spent long periods confined to his room devouring Greek myths, medieval romances, and fairy tales.

Green began a lifelong fascination with Greece and Greek culture when he first visited that country in 1935. He went on to compile and retell many Greek stories, including "Old Greek Fairy Tales," and "Jason and the Golden Fleece." Green also wrote his own stories, but he is better known for his retellings of folk tales from around the world.

Roger Lancelyn Green died in 1987

School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-9-The finest retelling of the Arthurian stories from Malory, this includes the glory days of Lancelot, Percivale, Gareth, Galahad, and others, through the treachery of Mordred and the spine-tingling hope that Arthur may come again. In a spirited introduction, British writer David Almond explains why this was his favorite childhood book and continues to inspire him. © Copyright 2017.
