Kevin Crossley-Holland  - The Seeing Stone

The Seeing Stone

Author: Kevin Crossley-Holland

  • AGES 12 - 14 
  • Genre Historical Fiction,Fantasy
It is 1199 and young Arthur de Caldicot, aged 13, is waiting impatiently to grow up and become a knight. One day his friend's father, Merlin, gives him a shining piece of obsidian, and his life becomes entwined with that of his namesake, the Arthur whose story he sees unfold in the stone. In this many-layered novel, King Arthur is seen as a mysterious presence influencing not just one time and place, but many. The 100 short chapters are almost like snapshots, not only of the mythic tales of King Arthur, but the earthy, uncomfortable reality of the Middle Ages. Written in the direct, open voice of a real boy living in a time of uncertainty about the future, this story touches on the issues of war and peace, social inequality, religion, reason, and superstition. A thoroughly contemporary novel about the past and a brilliant new take on the Arthurian legends. The Seeing Stone is the first book in an exciting trilogy.
