A winner of the Whitbread Children's Book Award and two Smarties Book Prizes, former British Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo here tells of Sir Gawain, King Arthur's nephew, and his encounter with the Green Knight. The otherworldly giant bursts in on the New Year's feast at Camelot to issue a challenge: any knight may attempt to strike off his head with a blow, but that knight will then be obliged, in a year, to find the Green Knight again and accept the same fate. Greenaway Medalist Michael Foreman provides the black and white drawings for this fantastic long tale for readers 10 and up.
