King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     Arthur waited in line to try pulling the great sword from the stone. He had no idea that King Uther, who had just died, was his real father. He had no way of knowing that he was the true heir to the throne.
 
2     His turn came. He gripped the huge sword, glittering with shiny metals and jewels, and slid it from its stone scabbard. That was the proof that England needed. Arthur was crowned King. "Long live the king!"
 
3     Arthur ruled England with the guidance of his long-time guardian, Merlin the magician.
 
4     He had brave and loyal knights - Lancelot, Gawain, and many others.
 
5     King Arthur's knights took their role seriously. They promised to abide by a code of rules. They promised to act bravely and with honor. They promised not to murder innocent people and to rescue ladies in distress.
