Read full description of the books The Princess, the Crone, and the Dung-Cart Knight:Ah, Gerald Morris is back on safer ground here, sticking to what he understand -- Chrétien and Malory. Well, you have to be a bit of an ass, to my mind, to dismiss one of Chrétien's works as a "clinker", and as I recall Chrétien never finished the tale in question himself, so...
In any case, Morris' shocking inability to research aside, this one is quite fun and Lady Sarah is a fun character. There are quite a few strong, positive female characters in this one, which made it that bit more fun, and he actually writes a Lancelot I give two hoots about, so that's something.
Of course, if the Arthurian legend is serious business to you, don't touch this with a barge pole, but I do find the light tone refreshing, myself.
Read information about the authorGerald Morris is an award-winning author, best known for his retellings of Arthurian legends for preteen and teen readers.
His first series, called The Squire's Tales, focuses primarily on a squire named Terence, alongside his knight, Sir Gawain. Whilst these two characters remain in the series, the majority of the later books introduce new protagonists. As the series progresses, the tone becomes darker, to reflect the bleak ending of the original legends. All of the main heroes' storylines are picked up again in the final book, The Legend of the King.
His second series, The Knights' Tales, is for younger readers and began with The Adventures of Sir Lancelot the Great, published in 2008, followed by The Adventures of Sir Givret the Short in the same year.
Morris was born in Riverside, California in 1963, the son of Russell A. Morris. He was educated at the Oklahoma Baptist University and the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He married Rebecca Hughes, has 3 children, and now lives in Wausau, Wisconsin. He also lived for a short time in Oklahoma. Apart from writing, Morris teaches theology and serves as a pastor for church.
