Publisher's Summary

Peace reigns in Caer Dallben, where Taran works as Assistant Pig-Keeper, but evil threatens the rest of Prydain. The diabolical Arawn's army grows every day, and his terrible warriors never die. They are born in the Black Cauldron from the stolen bodies of slain soldiers. If evil is to be defeated, the cauldron must be destroyed. Taran volunteers to travel to Arawn's stronghold and assist in the destruction of the dreaded cauldron. With his faithful friends reassembled, Taran marches off to face great danger with a courageous heart.

Outstanding storytelling!

Timeless classic of that sets the standard for much of the contemporary high fantasy literature and programs we see today. A must read for children, YA and adults.

Just as good as the first book.

The Black Cauldron is just as good as the first book, the book of three. And it is also a book with even deeper meanings and more lessons to be learned.
