Summary

Even though young Arthur pulled a sword from a stone and became King of England, he just doesn't feel like a king. Old Merlin tells him a story of fighting dragons, clashing armies, and Merlin's own youth and prophetic dreams. The wizard's story teaches Arthur about trusting in himself and inspires an "ordinary" boy to have the courage to rise to greatness. Kevin Kline narrates noted author Jane Yolen's charming elaboration on medieval Arthurian literature.

Listened again and again

I’ve listened to this story with my 6 year old granddaughter many times. The story is compelling and it is read with excellence. It was only after listening a few times that i realized it was the actor Kevin Kline.! His telling could not be better.

Short But Sweet

This was a wonderful audiobook, albeit short. Kevin Kline brings both the characters and story to life with his stunning voice. The background music and sound elements provide the atmosphere to keep you in the world of knights and dragons. Rather than taking on the entire Arthurian legend, this story focuses on one lesson in Arthur’s early kingship. What starts out as a simple tale from Merlin becomes a defining moment in the young king’s life.

Merlin and the Dragons

Enjoyable read, with good use of music and sound effects. Good for a rainy day.
