Many years ago, the storytellers say, the great King Arthur brought justice to England with the help of his gallant Knights of the Round Table.

Sir Lancelot the Great

Of these worthy knights, there was never one so fearless, so chivalrous, so honorable, so . . . shiny as the dashing Sir Lancelot, who was quite good at defending the helpless and protecting the weak, just as long as he’d had his afternoon nap. Behold the very exciting and very funny adventures of Lancelot the Great, as only the acclaimed Arthurian author Gerald Morris can tell them. Download and start listening now!

    " If you are a fan of sword fighting heroes, no one is quite as good a Sir Lancelot the Great. These stories are a funny twist on some well known tales, and made me laugh while I read them. The illustrations are just as silly as the stories. I'm hoping this is part of a series. "
