Princess Eilonwy hates to leave her friend Taran and her beloved home, but she must go to the Isle of Mona to train as a proper lady.

When Eilonwy is put under a deep spell, Taran and his companions set out on a dangerous quest to rescue her.

“Character and dialogue is handled humorously and dextrously, which sets this classic-in-the-making apart from other folklore-based fantasies.” —Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)
