Publisher Description

Taran Wanderer, the fourth book in Lloyd Alexander's The Chronicles of Prydain

Taran is an Assistant Pig-Keeper no longer--he has become a hero. Now he dreams of winning the hand of Princess Eilonwy, but how can someone who has spent his whole life caring for a pig hope to marry royalty? Taran must find out who he really is. Eager to learn his origins and hoping to discover noble roots, Taran sets off with the faithful Gurgi.

The journey takes the companions to the three witches in the Marshes of Morva and through the many realms of Prydain. At last they reach the mystical Mirror of Llunet, which reveals a person's true identity. Yet Taran may not be ready to face the truth. . . .

Includes a new pronunciation guide.

Coming of age

This novel is so rich! Slower moving than the other books, however very deep character development for young Taran. This volume of the Prydain Chronicles offers a window into the culture and people of Prydain with great reference of traditional Welsh myths. These books inspired me to read as a child and this series by Alexander are great for any age, and perfect for young readers. Great for reading aloud too!
