The Book of Three

We read this book out loud as a family.  It is the first in a series of 5 books.  The story is about a young boy who is an assistant pig keeper but wants to be out in the world, performing heroic deeds.  My older kids (Boy, age 8 and girl, age 10) really enjoyed this adventure story.  They liked all the action and excitement.  My daughter really picked up on the humor and my son enjoyed a chapter where an entire castle tumbled to the ground.  I liked it because it is a simple, innocent adventure where adults are, generally, depicted as smart, helpful people rather than the current trend of portraying all adults as bumbling fools.

As the reader, I found it difficult to pronounce many of the names and places (I think they are Welsh) but halfway through I downloaded the audio version through the library website and that helped me figure out correct pronunciation! Check our Catalog
