Henry the Vth wouldn’t have occurred to me . . . though I do think he’d like the Agincourt speech.

I think Treasure Island or Kidnapped might be up next in our queue. Maybe more Arthurian legend, though.

You are way ahead oi me, and I’m now wishing I’d done more. My first grandson, who is now 11 and a huge reader and a lover of all hero and sword tales, also started early in literature. We watched Branagh’s version of Henry V together when he was about 4 (to his mother’s intense dislike) and I started reading to him from Redwall and Arthurian stories. He also listened to lots of His Dark Materials long before he could read the books. We’ve had a terrific time together reading, watching and listening to these stories. From the start his memory was mcuh better than mine: no matter how long a delay between chapters he could always remember exactly where we were and what was going on. We never did the Iliad though!
