Description
Long ago in the time of great darkness, a time without a king, there lived a fair boy called Arthur... So begins this dramatic tale of a humble boy destined to be king of all England. Each year young Arthur travels with his family to the old church of Londontown to attend the celebration of Christ's birth. But this year something magical occurs: In the snowy churchyard there appears a sword buried in a steel anvil in the center of a stone. Only he who can pull the sword from the stone and anvil can claim the right to the throne. Each knight in turn, including Arthur's older brother, is challenged to remove the sword but none succeeds. It is only when Arthur returns from a jousting tournament to fetch his brother's sword, that his true identity and the mystery of his royal destiny are revealed. In this re-telling of a story at the heart of Arthurian legend, Robert Sabuda shares his artistic gift with beautiful stained glass artwork that subtly evokes the context of the story.
