Author Info
Lloyd Alexander
Best known for his children's fantasy series, the Prydian Chronicles, Lloyd Alexander dropped out of college after one semester and joined the army to fight in World War II. After the war ended, the army transferred him to Paris to work in their counterintelligence unit, where he later requested a discharge to attend the Sorbonne. He met and married Janine Denni and the couple eventually moved, with Janine's young daughter, back to the U.S. Alexander's novels for children are a blend of fantasy and modern fables, many of which have roots in Welsh mythology. In 1969 he received the Newbery Medal for THE HIGH KING, which is the fifth book in the acclaimed Prydian Chronicles.
"Vividly conceived, romantic in mood, yet curiously contemporary in its immediacy and fast action...there are riches for every age."
From the Publisher
First Line Taran wanted to make a sword; but Coll, charged with the practical side of his education, decided on horseshoes.
Annotation Partially inspired by Welsh mythology, THE BOOK OF THREE is the first entry in Lloyd Alexander's Chronicles of Prydain quintet. It tells the story of Taran, the assistant pig-keeper to the most powerful enchanter in the Kingdom of Prydain. Despite his humble life, Taran dreams of adventure and glory--a dream that comes true when he is sent on a quest to save the kingdom of Prydain from the forces of evil. Unbeknownst to Taran, this quest will ultimately reveal the secrets of his own life. Other books in the series are THE BLACK CAULDRON, THE CASTLE OF LLYR, TARAN WANDERER, and THE HIGH KING, which won the 1969 Newbery Award. A companion book, THE FOUNDLING AND OTHER TALES OF PRYDAIN, gives readers a further glimpse into life in Prydain.
