Merlin needs to speak to Prince Arthur regarding King Uther’s decree against magic, since he knows Arthur will listen to reason. So when Merlin sees him passing by, alone, he intercepts him. As they journey together through the kingdom, Merlin shows Arthur a little about magic and introduces him to a dragon.

The dragon’s sister needs to be rescued, and Merlin invites Arthur to accompany him. But in the process, he will need to use magic. When Arthur sees how magic can be used for good, he knows he’ll need to confront his father. But will Arthur, Merlin, and the other magical folks suffer as a result?

My Friend Merlin introduces the friendship between Arthur and Merlin, as they work to change the fate of magic in the kingdom. This fun and lighthearted fantasy will entertain kids while introducing them to Arthurian legend.
