Young adult novel which is a delightful slant on the Arthurian legend. Dribs and drabs of real, everyday Medieval life are sprinkled seamlessly into the whole, making it feel totally real and immediate. A great gift item for a favorite niece or nephew!
From back cover: The year is 1199 and on the borders of England and Wales young Arthur de Caldicot waits impatiently to grow up and become a knight. One day his father's friend Merlin gives Arthur a shining black stone - a seeing stone - that shows him visions of his namesake, King Arthur.
At first, there seems to be no connection between Arthurs past and present. Manor life for Arthur de Calidicot is a complex struggle of terrible secrets and haunting jealousies. Nothing like the red and white dragons, or the sword in the stone. And yet . . . there is something binding the two Arthurs together.
It will be young Arthur's fate to discover what this connection is . . .

This is Book One of a trilogy, I'd say it's a book for teenagers. Pretty humorous. Author divides the book into 2 to 3 page chapters.
