Excellent book, story, writing, accessibility, adventure, and the list goes on. Best for grades 4-10, but ideal for 5/6 - 9. Read aloud to grades 2 and up. This is a post-Crusade medieval tale with something for everyone. I highly recommend this book ! The writing / storytelling is top-notch. This is not just another medieval tale, it is one of the best.

From the flyleaf:
"The folk-poem of the young King Horn belongs to the thirteenth century, though parts of the story go back to invasions of the ninth and tenth centuries. The tale opens when Prince Horn, son of the King of Suddenne, is fifteen, on a sleepy July afternoon when his kingdom is attacked by the Saracens, savage soldiers of a Turkish sultan. Peace has reigned long in Suddenne; war is only a story sung by the court minstrel. The kingdom is conquered, and the king is slain. Prince Horn and two young friends are set adrift in a small skift in the choppy sea, without oars or sail.

The boat drifts to the kingdom of Westernesse, where the three boys, concealing their identity, become pages at the royal court, and where, several years later, Horn is knighted by the king. Then, a second time, disaster: a treacherous friend betrays Horn's growing and hidden love for the princess Rymenhild; Sir Horn is exiled to Ireland.

And there, in Ireland, Horn battles to free his kingdom and win the hand of his love, Rymenhild.

Like the harpers and troubadours before him who sang this tale to knights and their ladies, Mr. Crossley-Holland weaves a song of adventure and romance."

Note---The title is King Horn and it is 215pp long. "A Medieval Romance" is not part of the title anywhere in the hardback I have in front of me. This deserves republishing !!! But the line art by Charles Keeping ought to be removed or replaced. It is not the best of that genre.

This book has everything. Romance, andventure, revenge, jealousy, friendship.. The list goes on and on! I found this book when I was very young and I consider it my favorite book. Nothing can top this book, if you read it you'll love it! It is a very easy read so it's not very "intellectual" but the heart of it is good.
