Miguel and King Arthur tells the story of a young boy, Miguel, and his desire to experience adventure in another one of The Great Gallardo's books. Frustrated by his continual failures at bat playing baseball, he escapes to the attic, where he magically becomes a character in the book The Knights of the Round Table. He learns that success and adoration are not everything, and that being truthful with oneself and others is one of the best life skills to acquire. Illustrations support the text.
