Weaving together history and myth, Robert the Bruce: The King and the Spiderbrings to life the most-famous legend of the freedom-fighting Scottish king.

Following the rebellious kings journey from crushing defeat in battle and daring escape to lonely exile in a dark cave, Robert the Bruce spots a tiny spider that refuses to give up trying to spin its web. Inspired by its perseverance, King Robert returns to lead the Scottish army, eventually defeating the English at the Battle of Bannockburn, a victory that ensured Scottish independence for three centuries.

This stunning picture book tells both the legend and the facts about one of Scotlands best-known kings, through illustrations packed with historical detail.
