Meet Arthur, the son of a blacksmith. His leisurely naps in the forest are frequently interrupted by pestering flies, so he crafts a sword to battle them. The verse he inscribes on it gets him in trouble. Following an unexpected encounter with two travelers, he takes off on an adventure where faces foes a lot larger than flies. Arthur the Fly-Slayer and the Forty Dragons celebrates courage, confidence and human ingenuity.
It is the story of a daydreamer with a silly nickname, who rises to the occasion aided by his quick wit.
