The Foundling and other tales of Prydain

Our rating: ***

This is a collection of short stories about Prydain. It’s very helpful for learning a little bit of the “background” history of Prydain, including the story behind Dyrnwyrn and how Orddu, Orgoch and Orwen found Dalben. There’s a fun story with Doli and several others.

I enjoyed this one. It’s a quick read, and there’s not a lot to it, but you could consider it a “nutritional supplement” for the Prydain Chronicles. I would recommend that you read the Chronicles first, then this one, not that it gives anything away, but it might make more sense. It’s a nice mix of six stories, (that’s a tongue-twister!) and it works great for a “quickie” while I’m waiting for something or other. Enjoy!
