Well, I finally found a copy of The Castle of Llyr, but I had to fly to the U.S. to do so. Interestingly enough, the one bookstore I went to had this but none of the other Prydain books. I have seen the last two in British bookstores, so I should be able to find Taran Wanderer the next time I'm in the mood for Alexander.

This was an enjoyable read. While it's still your basic kid's fantasy adventure tale (I can't help but think of the King's Quest video games when I read this stuff), Alexander probes more deeply into his characters in this story. Taran in particular has matured a lot. And for once, Eilonwy was more charming than annoying. I really enjoyed the chemistry between Taran and Eilonwy—they're growing up on us!

I read the Prydain Chronicles in 3rd grade. I loved that stuff! Dalben always cracked me up, and I wanted to grow up to be like Gwydion!
