Taran Wanderer, Alexander, Lloyd
2 Alexander, Lloyd Taran Wanderer
New York Holt, Rinehart & Winston 1967 First Edition Hard Cover 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall SIGNED by the Author
Near Fine in a Very Good dustjacket. Blue-green boards. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in blue. Light blue endpapers. 256pps. Stated First Edition. There is mild rubbing wear to the extremities and a neatly penned gift inscription on the ffep, otherwise fine: clean, tight, square and bright. The text is immaculate; no apparent reading wear. The price-clipped dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is lightly soiled and sundarkened and there is modest chipping at the extremities. A 1" closed tear is at the top of the rear jacket fold. Simply SIGNED by the author on the title-page. A very nice (and scarce) collector's-quality copy.

"A profound and enriching experience for all young readers, this stirring fourth book of the Prydain cycle is in keeping with the distinguished literary standards of the previous three books. Here Taran goes questing for his parentage, hoping that it will prove nobel for the sake of a certain princess with red-gold hair. Accompanied by the faithful Gurgi, he goes first to the three wily enchantresses of the Marshes of Morva who send him to consult the Mirror of Llunet to learn who he is with the cryptic promise that 'the finding takes no more than the looking.' Joined by some of his old friends, Taran, sidetracked time and time again by exciting adventures, eventually comes to the rugged wasteland where the shepherd Craddoc lives and for a time gains a father -- and comes to know shame.
In a deeply moving climax at the Mirror of Llunet which is not an ending but a beginning, Taran Wanderer learns who he is and the secret of the Mirror -- which the wily Enchantresses had known all along..."

Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before-and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love..."

Among those slaves is a mouse named Martin who has a warrior's heart, and a burning desire for freedom -- freedom not ony for himself, but for all of Badrang's victims.

Once again master storyteller Brian Jazques has crafted an epic adventure and filled it to the bursting point with unforgettable characters, including villians so hilariously evil you'll barely be able to keep from hissing them, and loveable woodland creatures so brave you'll want to stand and cheer as they fight for their freedom."

Gathering his mercenary band of rats, stoats and weasels about him, he prepared for his hour of vengeance. But there would be no heroics for Slagar the cruel, no courageous battle plans. He knew too well that the power of the legendary Redwall sword had vanquished more terrible enemies than himself. His scheme was much more cunning and would strike at the very heart of all the Abbey held dear. Above everything Redwallers loved and cherished their young. Slagar would steal them from under their very noses, and Mattimeo, Matthias's headstrong young son, would be the biggest prize of all."
