This is the third book in the series. It is a humorous, mostly reverent retelling of one small part of the King Arthur legends. The portrayal of male chivalry and female coyness is presented with just a hint of post modern self consciousness. In fact, I found myself cheering that the main character grapples with her less than perfect appearance, which is a common theme for young women today. Her will and determination at the beginning of the book, which has a defensive tone softens and strengthens through the course of the story until she comes into her power at the end. Morris's portrayal rings true and sincere. If I had a daughter, I would jump at the chance to read this to her.

Gerald Morris's series about Arthurian legends is one of the best out there. I've enjoyed reading these books through my childhood and teen years, and even into my adult years. And this one is my favourite in the series. They are so well-written and usually very funny. I would recommend this book to anyone. It's the 3rd one in the series, I believe.
