Taran is bored with his Assistant Pig-Keeper duties, even though his charge is none other than Hen Wen, Prydain's only oracular pig. He'd rather be doing something more heroic, like making swords and learning to use them. When Hen Wen escapes and Taran goes after her, he finds himself farther from home than he's ever been. Soon he begins to realize that heroism is no easy task. With the dreaded Horned King on the loose and King Arawn gathering the forces of evil, Taran must look past his own dreams to warn the population of Prydain -- before it's too late.

When I was in elementary school, I somehow wound up with a copy of The High King, the last book in the Chronicles of Prydain. I tried getting into it, but not knowing any of the characters or their previous adventures, I was kind of lost and never finished it. For some reason it's taken me 40 years to get around to starting the series at the beginning and I'm SO glad I did! For me, it rivals The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings for great Celtic-y/Northern European fantasy and is right there with the Earthsea series as great fantasy for young people. James Langton does a great job as the reader, too, with terrific voices for the characters.
