Publisher's Summary

Young Arthur doesn't understand why pulling a sword from a stone qualifies him for kingship. Old Merlin tells him a story of his childhood, when he first learned to trust in himself: a story about fighting dragons, clashing armies, and a young boy's prophetic dreams. Merlin's story inspires young Arthur with the confidence he will need to become a great king.

Masterfully narrated by film star Kevin Kline

An Audible classic

Although short, this is an excellent, light, classic Audible story. Very imaginative, but not pretentious. Excellent narration. A relaxing bedtime listen.

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.
