Arthur the Fly-Slayer & the Forty Dragons (FREE SHIPPING to Continental USA only)
Meet Arthur the Fly-Slayer; an unlikely hero! A young daydreamer with a silly nickname.
To avoid hard work at the forge, Arthur often escapes into the nearby forest for a leisurely nap. By his side rests a mighty sword, with a verse inscribed on its blade:
At rest I slay forty. Beware when I rise!
What does it mean? How does this verse get Arthur in trouble?
