The Ballad of Sir Dinadan by Gerald MorrisDescription: Young Dinadan has no wish to joust or quest or save damsels in distress or do any of the knightly things expected of him. He'd rather be a minstrel. But he was born to be a knight, and knights, of course, have adventures. So after his father forces knighthood upon him, he wanders toward King Arthur's court in the company of a misguided young Welsh lad named Culloch. There Dinadan meets Sir Kai and Sir Bedivere, and the three find themselves accompanying Culloch on the worst sort of quest. Series:
