Review: The Book of Three

The Book of Three
The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Pretty good.

A knock-off of Lord of the Rings, in some ways - you can tell where he's borrowing similar characters or plot points.

Taran's character is the strong point. His impatience and temper and immaturity ring true with young readers, and he learns lessons our children need to learn, without the story being preachy about it.

We're going on to the second of five.
