Sword of the Rightful King by Jane Yolen.
Harcourt, Inc: Orlando, 2003.

In this retelling of The Sword in the Stone, Jane Yolen brings the old characters to life and makes them real. She adds new twists to the story with her usual flair. Her version focuses mainly on the weak position that Arthur is in as High King of a country normally split into factions fighting against each other. It is a good story for someone who has not already been enchanted by the Arthur stories, and those who already love the stories will enjoy Yolen's additions.
