What Will She Read Next?

IMG_2975DAY 8. – Most underrated book.


It’s an older series that I’ve tried and tried to get students into reading but with all the new stuff out they pass it over.  The Prydain Chronicles by Lloyd Alexander.  It is a wonderful five book series about Taran the Assistant Pig Keeper. I came across the book almost by accident.  I love the Disney movie Black Cauldron from the 80s, my parents took us to see it at a drive in theatre back when they existed lol.  I wanted to find out more about the movie and that was when I discovered it was based on these books.  The movie actually combines events from both of the first two books in the set.  I think this is a series that readers who like Harry Potter, LOTR, anything fantasy would enjoy even adult readers but it seems to be languishing on library…
