Taran dreams of adventure, but nothing exciting ever happens to an Assistant Pig-Keeper—until his pig runs away. A chase through the woods leads Taran far from home and into great danger, for evil prowls the land of Prydain. With a collection of strange and wonderful friends whom he meets on his journey, Taran finds himself fighting so that good may triumph over evil—and so that his beloved home will not fall to a diabolical fiend.

    " This book was action packed and full of adventure. Would make a great read aloud. (First book of a series) "

    " Despite an overly simplistic writing style (even for a children's book), a rocky beginning, and containing quite a few cliches of the fantasy genre, "The Book of Three" turned out to be very entertaining, mainly due to the characters and quite a bit of humor that Alexander injected into his narrative. I would have eaten this up as a kid, and wish that I'd experienced it as a ten-year-old rather than as an adult who is attempting to fill in the gaps of his fantasy literature knowledge. "

    " I read this book when my kids were little. I had seen the Disney movie, "The Black Cauldron," which was actually pretty bad. My twins were in kindergarten or so, and they had a "book club" at school where they could order books. I ordered this one for me. I wanted to know the first story. As I red about Taran and Eilonwy, and their adventures with Fflewddur, Gurgi, Gwidion, etc., I got into the story. I remember thinking I should have a yellow highlighter because now and then a pearl of wisdom would appear that would make a good "thought for the day" or something. I followed the story through all 5 books - The Black Cauldron, The Castle of Llyr, Taran Wanderer, and The High King. I would recommend them to young and old, and have the old paper backs to lend to my friends. "

    " This was one of my FAVORITE books as a girl. In fifth or sixth grade my older sister Denise recommended I read The Chronicles of Prydain, which I did and LOVED. I was determined to grow up and have a little boy whom I would name Taran, after the series' protagonist. I now have a lovely three-year-old little GIRL named Taryn Denise, namesake of the two heroes of my childhood. "
