The Book of Three, Paperback / softback Book

The Book of Three Paperback / softback

Part of the Usborne Modern Classics series

Paperback / softback


The first book in The Chronicles of Prydain, a classic epic full of breathtaking action, humour, valour and excitement. Taran is desperate for adventure. Being a lowly Assistant Pig-Keeper just isn't exciting.

That is, until the magical pig, Hen Wen, disappears and Taran embarks on a death-defying quest to save her from the evil Horned King. His perilous adventures bring Taran many new friends: an irritable dwarf, an impulsive bard, a strange hairy beast and the hot-headed Princess Eilonwy.

Together, they must face the deathless Cauldron-Born warriors, dragons, witches and the terrifying Horned King himself.

Taran learns much about his identity, but the mysterious Book of Three is yet to reveal his true identity.
