Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the imaginary Land of Prydain, where "evil is never distant," it has become imperative that the Black Cauldron, chief implement of the diabolical Arawn, be destroyed. In this cauldron Arawn has created his terrible army of deathless warriors from the stolen bodies of the slain. For each of those chosen to journey to Arawn's domain, the quest has a special meaning, and to Taran, Assistant Pig-Keeper, the adventure becomes a glorious opportunity to wear his first sword and prove himself a man among men.

Synopsis:

"The reader's involvement is intense as the excitement leads up to the climactic meeting of tragedy and triumph."--"The Horn Book." Newbery Honor Book; ALA Notable Children's Book.
