This is the story of Arthur and Merlin in a way it has not been told before. My Friend Merlin by Joanne Lécuyer tells the story of how Arthur and Merlin met, and how together, they changed the fate of magic. Merlin is a druid who has a vision that will bring him into the life of Arthur, the King’s son. The King has forbidden the use of magic, but when the pixies cast a spell that puts the kingdom in danger, it is the fast actions of Arthur and Merlin that could save the day.
Lécuyer is the author of positive fantasy books, so it should come as no surprise that in My Friend Merlin she has created an engaging story of friendship and acceptance. It is an entertaining story that gently teaches children about not jumping to conclusions and the importance of standing up for what you believe.
The stunning and colorful artwork by Rich Lauzon is the perfect complement to Lécuyer’s fascinating, magical tale.
