'In these ten astounding tales - each one more rollicking than the last - 'Sir Launcelot' and 'Elaine' reveal the true story of King Arthur (he was once the assistant in Merlin's magic act);introduce us to the Black and Red Knights, so enamoured of each other they are hard put to find a reason to battle; show us the Enchanted Forest, where an ugly old woman assures Sir Gay that all is opposite - that she is in truth a rare beauty; and introduce us to the marvellous Sir Persival, whose enormous 'burden' is a great source of ribald interest to both sexes.'
