All Merlin knows is the village where he mixes potions for wary customers, and dreams strange dreams that sometimes come true. Then a mysterious hooded man appears, seeking a boy with no mortal father, and Merlin is taken far away, to a crumbling tower and a ruthless king.
To a place where his is not the only magic.
About the Tales from the Round Table series:
Epic battles, thrilling quests and forbidden love combine in the medieval story of the boy who would be king.
A retelling of the Arthurian legends, adapted and illustrated to introduce children aged 7+ to classic folklore. Great to share aloud, just like the original tales.
