So, this is the first book in the Prydain chronicles, and I had forgotten how much I love them until I started reading them again. These books are delightful in every way. The Book of Three is fairly light-hearted. It introduces all of the main characters, bringing them together has they travel through Prydain. The main character is Taran, Assistant Pig-Keeper of Caer Dallben. When the pig in his charge, Hen Wen, runs away, Taran is caught up in an adventure.
While this book feels like a bit of an introduction (and it is), it is still delightful in its own right. I highly, highly recommend this entire series. 5/5.
