Taran is joined by an engaging cast of characters that includes Eilonwy, the strong-willed and sharp-tongued princess; Fflewddur Fflam, the hyperbole-prone bard; the ever-faithful Gurgi; and the curmudgeonly Doli―all of whom become involved in an epic struggle between good and evil that shapes the fate of the legendary land of Prydain.

Henry Holt is proud to present this classic series to a new generation of young readers.

In their more than thirty years in print, the Chronicles of Prydain have become the standard of excellence in fantasy literature for children.
