Being a good knight is harder than it seems! Not only do you need a brave heart, a strong arm, and a keen eye, but also, you need to know your weaknesses, cooperate with others, and be undaunted by defeat. In this story-within-a-story we join young Tom of Warwick as he embarks on his noble adventure of becoming a knight. Under the guidance of Master William, Tom learns the ways of knighthood, comforted by the legends of those who've come before him. Stories in this collection hail from Britain, Germany, Russia, Brittany, France, Japan, and Persia. It is written and collected by John Matthews, expert in Celtic and Arthurian legend and history and the author of "Arthur of Albion" (HB: 9781846860485) and the "New York Times" best-seller Pirates books (Carlton). This multicultural collection is framed by a story about an aspiring knight, whose values children can relate to as they delve into these fascinating tales.

Alexandra
First of all, that review "From School Library Journal" has nothing to do with this book - I don't know what book it refers to, but it's irrelevant here. We all love the Barefoot Books - great way to expose your children to stories from a variety of cultures. The illustrations are lovely, and it is absolutely awesome to have a CD to go along with it. My boys love listening to all the knight adventures - and so do I. I highly recommend this book.
Buridora
Wonderful books!
Obong
Listen to the CD many times while driving to work and back. Loved the stories from medieval times. The stories also teach you about knights and the rules they had to respect.
Legionstatic
The Barefoot Books are fantastic. This book is exactly what I expected. My kids, 8 and 5, love it and are captivated by the stories.
Axebourne
My son loves the book, it is beautiful, a great addition to our library! However, it was sent to me with a CD that had nothing to do with the book, it was an old computer program CD. That was irritating because some of my boys like to listen to books on tape.
Malaris
Like the rest of the Barefoot series, these are intelligent stories. Our 6-year-old loves them. The cd is an extra bonus, with excellent narration.
Gravelblade
I bought this book for my knight-obsessed daughter and we both fell in love with it. The stories are powerful for children and adults alike. As an adult, I think of them often. Also, in between and around the knight tales is a story about the children listening to the tales -- these are young boys in training to be knights. This story-around-the-tales is really endearing and wonderful. The storyteller rewards the boys with these tales. The narrator is such a pleasure to listen to. His voice is absolutely perfect. I highly recommend this as a book to read to children, as a CD to listen to with children, or as a CD to play in the car or in a classroom. I have given this book and CD set several times as a gift, too. Outstanding!!
Fancy a brave adventure filled with knights and chivalry? The Middle Ages might be over, but John Matthew's captivating tales might make you think otherwise. Coupled with actor Anthony Head's magnificent storytelling, and Giovanni Manna's delightful illustrations, these seven stories come alive! Children and adults alike will love to revisit this CD and paperback collection time and time again.
