When he falls down a hole and accidentally wakes the sleeping King Arthur things seem to be looking up. An ancient hero to sort out the bullies for him! But Arthur is not exactly as the history books claimed. He’s nervous, can’t ride a horse and all his knights pick on him. If Tomos is going to solve his problems he’s going to have to help Arthur and that means dealing with twelve grumpy knights, not to mention the dread Chicken of Doom……
Arthur and Me is packed with hilarious illustrations by Peter Stevenson.
