More than 3 million copies of The Chronicles of Prydain in print!
Taran is bored with his Assistant Pig-Keeper duties, even though his charge is none other than Hen Wen, Prydain’s only oracular pig. He’d rather be doing something more heroic, like making swords and learning to use them.
When Hen Wen Escapes and Taran goes after her, he finds himself farther from home than he’s ever been. Soon he begins to realize that heroism is no easy task. He meets a prince on the road, as well as a strange creature named Gurgi. And when they are captured he meets the beautiful princess Eilonwy, and the bard Fflewidor Fflam.
With the dreaded Horned King on the loose and Kng Arawn gather the forces of evil, Taran must look past his own dreams to warn the population of Prydain before it’s too late.
This is a great classic book. Love the Hobbit? Chronicles of Narnia? You will gobble this book up! This book installs a sense that you can do something in the world that it doesn’t matter who you are, or what your job is, if you try hard you can change the world.
