Sword in the Stone, The: Reviewed

Author:T.H. White
Illustrator:Dennis Nolan
Reading Level (Conceptual):Children 12 and up
Reading Level (Vocabulary):Children 8 and up
Genre:fiction, King Arthur
Year of publication:1938

Lovely anachronism-rich story of the childhood of King Arthur.

My daughter recommends this version because of the gorgeous illustrations by Dennis Nolan
After the first appearance of an anachronism -- is it the mention of "Red Indians" near page 5?, my daughter leapt upon other chronological inconsistencies. And, well, those last words -- daughter just roared with amusement. Any version of this book is recommended, but if you can, try to find this one and take a look at page 96, "'I could be a hawk in Hob's mews,' said the Wart stoutly." Soooo cute
