Clyde Robert Bulla

In the times of King Arthur there stood a powerful oak tree in the partitions of a fort. Peace reigned within the fort until eventually the fearsome evening whilst Lionel, longlost brother of Lord Weldon, lower back to reason difficulty and unhappiness.

It was once then that Shan, the son of Lord Weldon, took at the tasks of a knight and concealed the sword within the hole of the large oak. the times that have been choked with adventures that attempted the braveness of the younger boy.

Shan used to be stunned via bearded robbers within the woods. He met noble knights in plumed helmets, and finally he even made a visit to high-towered Camelot. His tale is full of the pageantry and colour of britain in King Arthur's time. It creates a shiny photo of the Knights of the around desk and the knowledge of King Arthur himself.

Mr. Bulla captures the spirit of these romantic days in a simple, fascinating demeanour. the result's one other pleasant booklet for his large viewers of younger readers. Paul Galdone's full of life illustrations are as evocative because the text.
