Reviews about The Kitchen Knight: A Tale of King Arthur (7):

I have loved the illustrations of Trina Schart Hyman since I was child. Some years back I tried to buy this book, but it had gone out of print and the used copies were selling for $50.00. So, I was excited to see that it had been reissued.

The story is based on one of the legends of King Arthur. It is about a young man who seeks favor with the King Arthur; he goes on a journey, faces many foes and yes saves a princess locked in a tower. However, the maiden in the tower does have a fiery sister which makes the story a bit less patriarchal. The pictures are the main attraction and they are beautiful. It is standard paperback book quality. I would not recommend it for children younger than 1st grade unless they have a decent attention span because there is quite a bit of text.

I absolutely love this book!! If you read this duo's version of St. George and the dragon, you'll love this. If you haven't read that, go and get that one too. I love Hodges' use of language; she is a master storyteller and Hyman's illustrations are stunning. The only negative thing is that I bought this as a gift for one of my children and now I have to wait to give it and share it with them!

Our entire family (five kids, ages 1y-10y) loves this book. The illustrations are perfectly captivating with plenty of detail and the book is beautifully written. It's wordy (which we love)... this is not a little storybook with a couple phrases or sentences on a page, but is thoughtfully and thoroughly written in lovely language. My boys AND girls appreciate this masterful story.

The King Arthur stories are foundational stories to which all young children should be exposed. Unfortunately, some authors take the approach of compressing the many stories into one volume. This approach has the value of consistency but unfortunately strips out a lot of the meaning of the stories. A better approach is to take the individual stories and re-work them so that young children can understand them.

The story of the "Kitchen Knight" is one of the best stories in the Arthurian cycle. Unforutnatley, it is also one of the stories with so much odd detail. Margeret Hodges does a beautiful job of boiling down the story to its essential parts. In addition, Trina Schart Hyman's wonderful illustrations add yet another level of pleasure to the story. Highly recommended.

Not as good as Hodges's St. George and the Dragon, but a decent story and beautifully illustrated.
Ochach
I would say that this story from Hodges and Hyman is an excellent classic, retold with vivid language and illustrated with unique scenes. The characters are layered with depth of feeling, and make this another of my favorites by a great team.
My grandchildren love these books. The illustrations are beautiful!
