A perfect fantasy adventure for young fans of “The Hobbit” or “The Dark is Rising.”

Be careful what you wish for! Taran, a humble assistant pig keeper wishes for my excitement in his life, and boy does he get it in this magical adventure. Royals in disguise, a kind caretaker who just might be Noah from the Bible, prison breaks, evil sorcerers, plus touches of humor throughout blend together for an imaginative sojourn to the magical land of Prydain, which is based on medieval Wales. Plus, instead of a damsel in distress, readers are treated with Eilonwy: a plucky, sassy redheaded girl whose wits and magical talents save the adventurers more than once.

This classic novel perfect for middle school age readers and up is available in various formats from CADL, but the audiobook is narrated by Audie Earphones Award Winner James Langton, whose transportive Yorkshire accent helps to immerse you in the world of Prydain.
