I just read some sad news from Heidi MacDonald's blog, The Beat. Lloyd Alexander has passed away. The Chronicles of Prydain, with their adventures of Taran, Eilonwy, Gurgi, and the rest, were a huge and important part of my childhood. I am sorry to hear of his passing.
On a more positive note, I look forward to sharing these books with Alex and Zack when they get older.
This cover is from The Book of Three, the first book in the five-book series that was Alexander's most famous story.
