In our last episode of 2014, we share some thoughts on Lloyd Alexander's Chronicles of Prydain series, which is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary. Dusty adored the series (but not the Disney movie) as a teenager, but this is Carly's first romp in the company of Taran, Assistant Pig-Keeper of Caer Dallben, Princess Eilonwy, Gurgi, and the other characters populating Alexander's memorable fantasyland. What makes the series worth reading half a century after its first printing? How does it stack up against the young adult fantasy novels that are today so popular? Tune in for our answers to these and many more questions.
