“King Arthur and the Magic Sword speaks to the special child (and there are many): the adolescent who sees grave wrongs in the ways of the world and vows to right them; the shining young spirit untarnished by adult (or peer) stupidity and power struggles, who believes that the strength and sincerity of his mission to banish injustices will cleave a path to human equality and harmony.” –Twin Cities Reader
