    1st printing. In the land of Prydain, Taran, a young apprentice to an aged sorcerer, longs to leave his mundane existence for that of a heroic soldier. As if in answer to Tarans ambitions, the evil Horned King begins his plan to rule the world. The dreaded monarch requires the reanimation of his dead warriors; something the mysterious black cauldron can accomplish—if he can find it. Impeding the Horned Kings search becomes Tarans mission and his opportunity to fulfill his heroic reverie. This book is the adaptation of the Disney animated movie based on the fantasy by noted childrens author, Lloyd Alexander. Much of the storys more gruesome situations have been diminished in favor of the requisite cuteness factor ever present in Disneys animated movies. Nevertheless, the story of a young man rising to a challenge against overwhelming odds combined with romance, mystical forces, self-sacrifice and, of course, cuddly creatures, make this standard Disney fare. Softcover, 8-in. x 11-in., 40 pages, Full Color. Cover price $2.95.
