Description
The land of Prydain will never be free of the scourge of Arawn as long as he possesses the Black Cauldron, from which he conjures his undead warriors. In this Newbery Honor Book—the second in the series and the inspiration for the Disney animated film of the same name—each of those chosen to journey to Arawn's domain have their own reasons to join the quest to destroy the cauldron. For Taran, Assistant Pig-Keeper, the adventure becomes an opportunity to wear his first sword and to prove himself the hero he has always wanted to be. Since The Book of Three was first published in 1964, Lloyd Alexander's gripping and witty magical tales have captured the imaginations of readers 9 and up, earning the Newbery Medal and Honor as well as nominations for the National Book and American Book Awards. Inspired by Welsh mythology, the Chronicles of Prydain recount the many adventures of Taran the Assistant Pig-keeper and his heroic friends in their quest to save the land of Prydain from darkest evil.
