The Sword in the Stone

The many years without a King has thrown England into great turmoil, but such things are of little concern to the orphan boy, Arthur--or "Wart" as he is called by his foster family. Wart dreams of someday fighting dragons and defeating ogres as the squire to a great knight however the wizard Merlin has other ideas. He believes that Wart has the potential to discover that brain is mightier than brawn--a lesson that will prove valuable when it comes time for Wart to fulfill his true destiny.
