King Arthur Benjamin Hulme-Cross
Arthur has no thoughts of being king – he’s a squire and that’s that. But the old king is dead and Merlin the wizard has set up a sword, pushed halfway into a rock. The one who pulls out the sword will be the new king – and soon, that’s Arthur! Follow King Arthur as he battles giants and knights, and learns to be a true king.
