Book Details

King Vortigern thinks he's so clever but his servant Mervyn knows he is playing a dangerous game. Can Mervyn keep the King safe from the invading Saxons, Pictish raiders, and a beautiful Saxon princess? Join master storyteller Terry Deary for a trip back in time to Saxon times and an exciting adventure.


These stories are great fun but they also contain plenty of authenticity and Tambe's illustrations add to the period feel. --Parents in Touch
