The Castle of Llyr

by Lloyd Alexander

This is a book in the Chronicles Prydain series.  The characters are Taran of Caer Dallben, an assistant pig keeper, Gurgi, Fflewddur Fflam and Eilonwy. 

In this book, Taran has to take Eilonwy to a ship that will take her back to her homeland, the House of Llyr.  There they meet adventure, troubles and action which include a bumbling prince who still saves the day, a giant, and a giant mountain cat.

My favorite part was when the giant mountain cat, Llyan, rescues them when someone floods the castle. 

This is a good book for people who like Medieval times and Welsh mythology and mostly it would be good for kids who are willing to read longer books and like unusual words.
