The Sword in the Stone

No-one notices Arthur much – except the magician Merlyn. Overshadowed by his father, Sir Ector, and his bullying big brother Kay, Arthur is the runt: so much so that everyone calls him “the Wart”. But when Merlyn the magician comes to tutor Kay and the Wart, life suddenly becomes much more fun! After all, who wouldn’t enjoy being turned into a fish, or a badger, or a snake? But Merlyn has very special plans for the Wart. He knows something other people don’t: that the Wart is a future king! This new edition of T.H. White’s classic story includes a special “Why You’ll Love This Book” introduction by bestselling author Garth Nix.
