PPS Color Me™ Pages: a knight's tale

For boys or girls, this would be a fun one. They remind me a little bit of Classics Illustrated, a sort of comic book focussed on fine literature from back in the middle of our last century.
It might be fun to either share your version of this famous tale, or to suggest that a different storyline be made up by the children coloring these sheets.
Written in Jane Austen's time, the story of Ivanhoe is an earlier period novel dating to around 1819. The author was Sir Walter Scott. For more information on both author and book, you can go HERE.
It's a great story for boys, but not every hero in this old timey plot line is of the masculine persuasion. In fact, there is at least one damsel of great courage, if I remember correctly.
Also, there are lessons in bravery, tolerance, religious differences, and good versus evil. Just a bit too advanced or lengthy for your average young reader. For those interested, you can read the plot line HERE and study notes HERE.
Each one of these, when printed, will print off at a bit larger than 6" by 9", with some border left for the child's name, the date, etc on your average 81/2" by 11" sheet.
Happy Creativity from all of us to all of the children interested in acts of bravery, loyalty, kindness, knights, ladies, and old timey tales!
