best retelling of King Arthur legends suitable for 7th and 8th grades?

Recommended Posts

Rosemary Sutcliff has The Sword and the Circle. I feel like it is part of a larger series (a trilogy?) but that is the only title I remember. I might be confusing the trilogy part with another Sutcliff series of books. The Sword and the Circle might be a stand alone. They are all running together in my brain.

Black Horses for the King, by Anne McCaffrey.


The Sword in the Stone by TH White. The rest of the books in The Once and Future King get very dark - I would not recommend them for this age group.


The Mary Stewart books mentioned by a pp have a fair amount of implied sexuality that you may or may not be comfortable with.
