Summary

Princess Eilonwy hates to leave her friend Taran, Assistant Pig-Keeper, and her beloved home. Why does she have to go to the Isle of Mona to train as a proper lady when she’s already a princess? But Eilonwy soon faces more than the ordeal of becoming a dignified young maiden, for she possesses magical powers sought by the evil enchantress Queen Achren. When Eilonwy is put under a deep spell, Taran and his companions must embark on a dangerous quest to rescue her.

First published in 1966, this profound tale of adventure and heroism continues Taran and Eilonwy’s journey. Filled with special bonus material that includes a new introduction by Origami Yoda author Tom Angleberger, as well as an additional story of Prydain and hand-written notes from Lloyd Alexander, this special 50th anniversary edition has something for fans both new and old.

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

Author Biography

Lloyd Alexander (1924-2007) was the author of more than forty books for children and adults, including the beloved children's fantasy series the Chronicles of Prydain, one of the most widely read series in the history of fantasy and the inspiration for the animated Disney film The Black Cauldron. His books have won numerous awards, including the Newbery Medal, the Newbery Honor, and the National Book Award for Juvenile Literature.
