King Arthur's Very Great Grandson

author/illustrator: Kenneth Kraegel

Henry Alfred Grummorson is the great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandson of Arthur, King of Britain. On his sixth birthday, adorned with a helmet and sword, Henry goes in search of adventure. He challenges a fire-breathing dragon to a fight, but the dragon prefers a game of blowing smoke rings. A cyclops wants only to have a staring contest. Even the griffin will not engage in -- a battle to the uttermost -- of the type Henry desires. Desperate for a real battle, strength against strength, might against might, Henry seeks out the fearsome leviathan. Has he met his match at last -- or might he find something he didn’t know he was looking for? Children bold and imaginative will relate to Henry’s quest -- and smile at its unintended consequences.

Newcomer Kenneth Kraegel wryly draws from myth and legend to craft a daring and inventive tale to delight adventurers of all ages.
