The story of the "Kitchen Knight" is one of the best stories in the Arthurian cycle. Unforutnatley, it is also one of the stories with so much odd detail. Margeret Hodges does a beautiful job of boiling down the story to its essential parts. In addition, Trina Schart Hyman's wonderful illustrations add yet another level of pleasure to the story. Highly recommended.
