I originally read the Prydain series in elementary school and remembered liking them. I had mentioned them in the past to my daughter and she's been wanting to read them for a while. So the whole family decided to read them. Unfortunately, they were not nearly as good as I remembered. The stories were pretty simplistic and childish with not a lot of detail. The characters were one dimensional with repetitive descriptions based off a single characteristic. A couple characters actually die, but it didn't matter because I didn't really care about them because they were not fleshed out. The plotting was really simplistic. It just jumps from one issue to the next with issues miraculously resolving themselves. It was fun reading with the family and the Welsh mythology inspiration was interesting, but overall it wasn't a great read.
