     Bingham, Jane. Stories of Knights (published in 2004 by Usborne Publishing Ltd., Usborne House, 83-85 Saffron Hill, London, EC1N 8RT, England, and republished in the United States by EDC Publishing, 10302 E. 55th Pl., Tulsa, OK 74146). This is one of the "Usborne Young Reading: Series One" books which combine good stories with easy reading text and are for readers who have just started reading alone. Usborne Books are very attractive and quite readable. Children (and adults) seem to enjoy them. These stories of knights are based on Arthurian legends. When King Arthur set up his court, hundreds of knights wanted to join him, but they had to fight fierce giants and deadly dragons first because only the bravest, strongest, and most loyal of knights could sit at the king’s Round Table. This book has three such tales: "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight," "the Tale of the Kitchen Knight," and "Sir Gawain and the Loathly Lady."
