A book for young and old alike. It is not so indepth that a young reader cannot get into it, nor so simple that an experienced reader will not enjoy it. The Chronicles of Prydain is a great series, I enjoyed them all.
My boss told me that if I didn't read this book, she wouldn't speak to me. I read the book and enjoyed it immensely. I have the rest of the series too and I look forward to reading the entire series. Something I should have read long ago.
This is a very sweet but kind of simple book--easy to read, but not too exciting to go to sleep after. It's the first in the series, and the books get better and better; but you have to start with this one.
