This was the one and only fantasy book I ever had as an assigned reading in school. What is it about mainstream dramatic fiction that sustains its lifeblood? I am clueless. But I loved this book, loved the series, and loved having a teacher to discuss it with. This is well written and if Harry Potter strikes you as too intense for children, then this would be the alternative I would suggest.

I read this series as a boy and it made a huge impact on me. Since then, many juvenile fantasy series have come along, but this one still has to rate at the top.

Taran, Assistant Pig Keeper to the Sage Dallben, once again joins Lord Gwydion to defend Prydian agains the evil Arawn. Their band of warriors attempts to steal the Black Cauldron, the source of Arawn's undead minions, only to discover that it has been removed from Arawn's stronghold. This is a fun and light hearted tale to be enjoyed by young readers and adults too.
