Summary
When the Green Knight invades King Arthur's New Year's celebration in Camelot and dares the Court to play a dangerous game, Sir Gawain takes up the challenge with the intention of ridding their peaceful kingdom of this uninvited rival once and for all.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: A witty Arthurian tale receives a wondrous translation by England's Children's Laureate and an award-winning artist.

Think yourself back in years, my friends. . . .

It's New Year's Eve in Camelot, where King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, and all their good Knights wait breathlessly for an extravagant feast to begin. Suddenly, a strange and frightening Knight bursts into the hall — a giant of a man, green from head to toe, who mockingly challenges the Court to a shocking game. Only the chivalrous Sir Gawain dares to take on the hideous Green Knight. But over the unexpected course of his test,
will Gawain prove as brave and honest as he'd like to believe? Welcome to a medieval world full of sword fights and shape-shifting, monsters and magic, and timeless characters both gallant and wonderfully human. Written anonymously in the fourteenth century, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is retold in its entirety by Michael Morpurgo in a lively and accessible narration that captures all the tale's drama and humor. Vivid illustrations by the celebrated Michael Foreman infuse this classic tale with the sights and colors of dragons, swords, and medieval pageantry.
