I do feel your frustration. It happens to me all the time, either available here and nowhere else, or the reverse. Or else it's something ridiculously expensive.

ETA: I bet it's The Sword in the Stone.

It is not The Sword in the Stone, although I was considering it until I saw that The Once and Future King is over 600 pages. I'm not sure if the Sword is available separately or not. I plan on reading it this year because I never have before (although I really like the Disney movie).

I was going to nominate The Crystal Cave by Mary Stewart which, of the ones I have read, is my favorite of the Arthur (or specifically Merlin) retellings.

I think I am going to look for some non-US/UK stories instead though. My eldest is in an all day competition tomorrow which means I have a full day of sitting in the bleachers to look forward to and I will try to find something then.

For now, I am going to second The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents.
