About this book

Wiki

The Chronicles of Prydain (sometimes given as The Prydain Chronicles) is a five-volume series of children's fantasy novels by author Lloyd Alexander. First published from 1964–1968, the stories detail the adventures of a young man named Taran, who is awarded the honor of Assistant Pig-Keeper but dreams of being a grand hero, and his companions Princess Eilonwy, Fflewddur Fflam the wandering bard and king, a feral yet gentle creature called Gurgi, and a dwarf named Doli. Since a recurring facet of the series is the progression from youth to maturity, particularly prominent in Taran Wanderer, the series could be considered a bildungsroman.
In the early 2000s, an unabridged audiobook production of the series was produced by Listening Library, narrated by James Langton, with author's notes read by Lloyd Alexander.
The Black Cauldron, an animated film based on the books, was released by the Walt Disney Company in 1985.
