Description

"Hardly a junior Mists of Avalon, this large picture book pays welcome attention to a female figure--the central female--in the Arthurian cycle. The motherless daughter of a king, Guinevere spends her maiden days embroidering or wandering in the forest with her bow. She shoots a wolf, then discovers and treats the shape-changing, wild boy she has wounded. Later the wolf/boy helps her evade a siege of her father's castle, escape a dragonlike beast, and seek aid from the court of King Arthur. Arthur falls in love with her, but she overhears Merlin warn him that their marriage could be disastrous. When the young king decides to take that risk, the story ends happily, with Guinevere riding off to her wedding." -- School Library Journal
