The Foundling and Other Tales from Prydain - Lloyd Alexander6.66

Six short stories dealing with events that preceded the birth of Taran, a key figure in the author's five works on the Kingdom of Prydain.

Note! New editions contain eight short stories. "The Truthful Harp" and "Coll and His White Pig" were originally published separately as picture books illustrated by Evaline Ness, but after going out of print the stories were included in subsequent editions of The Foundling and Other Tales from Prydain.

Enter the world of Prydain for a journey into enchantment. Meet Dallben the enchanter as a foundling, and follow him through his youth. Learn the sad history of the sword of Dyrnwyn, and rejoice at the romance of Princess Angharad at the Castle of Llyr. Discover the secret of Doli of the Fair Folk and his magic stone. Take a step into the land of Prydain – a place you will never forget.
