The only reason Lancelot wants to become a knight is so he can wear a shiny armor and have everyone admire him. Of course he also becomes the best knight and soon everyone wants to fight him and claim that they are better than Sir Lancelot. But Lancelot soon tires of the fights and retires to a life of a hermit until a jealous knight challenges King Arthur's throne and charges Queen Guinevere with treason. Lancelot must come out of retirement and battle to save the queen and kingdom!

This is a fun and light-hearted Arthurian tale retold by the writer of many other previous Arthurian novels for kids. The Adventure Sir Lancelot the Great by Gerald Morris is under 100 pages and perfect for a reluctant reader or one who loves adventures with a big dose of humor. For readers in 3rd - 4th grade.

A new and upcoming series, Knights' Tales.
