A blow on the head transports an arms factory superintendent from modern-day Hartford back to the world of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. He introduces their society to the bicycle and the printing press. And to top it all off, he makes the sun disappear. AVAILABLE ON CASSETTE AND CD.
In “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court” Connecticut resident Hank Morgan wakes up after a knock on the head to find himself in the King Arthur era. Narrator Gibson does a magnificent job imitating all sorts of voices--old and young, aristocratic and peasant, and modern and medieval--in her rendering of this time-travel tale. Gibson's reading captures all the humor of the text.
