The Kitchen Knight retold by Margaret Hodges. il Trina Schart Hyman.
Holiday House: NY, 1990.

This is one of the King Arthur tales told less often. I find the introduction of Gareth's character fascinating. On arriving in Camelot, he doesn't tell his name and accepts a job in the kitchen, because he wants to be credited for his accomplishments not for being Arthur's nephew. The story is expanded upon in Gerald Morris's The Savage Damsel and the Dwarf. I enjoy Trina Schart Hyman's almost full-page illustrations. The story is accessible to young readers, but the ending will appeal more to girls because of the chivalry theme.
