Though Sir Ector raises him as one of his sons, Artos never feels he truly belongs. The other boys of the castle — Cai, Bedvere, and Lancot — make fun of him and never invite him to join in their games.One day, while searching for Sir Ectors missing brachet hound in the fens around the castle, Artos stumbles across a musty cave in a hill where a very old dragon lives. Though he is afraid, he is drawn to the beast by both the dragons knowledge and his promise to teach Artos the game of wisdom. With the dragons guidance, Artos begins the slow journey to his destiny-one that he never dreamed could belong to him.Notable 1990 Childrens Trade Books in Social Studies (NCSS/CBC)
