March 2012 Guest Editor Alan Bradley on T. H. White...

No other book, I think, has had such a great influence on my own writing. White’s agent once said of him that he had the power to make grown men cry, and he was right. This is prose as it should be written. It’s about King Arthur. Buy it.

The Once and Future King Synopsis

The extraordinary story of a boy called Wart -- ignored by everyone except his tutor, Merlin -- who goes on to become King Arthur.

The Once and Future King Press Reviews

'White's retelling of the King Arthur legends first appeared in the late 1930s and, although it wasn't originally intended for a young readership it has become immensely popular with children. There is some gore, however, so older children may appreciate it most.' (Kirkus UK)
