This series of books by LLoyd A. was read to me as an 11yr old by an amazing teacher: Michael Waters

Michael Waters was an amazing story teller, which included other tales such as "Phantom toll booth"
"Machine gunners" & so much more.....
In the limited amount of time I shared with my own amazing children, I attempted to pass on this incredible adventure with the same pinash & gusto, worthy of the 1st telling given to me as a gift, sending me down a path of passion for the written adventure, imagination & worlds, places, people created in our own minds eye
Book of 3, Black Cauldron, Castle of LLyr, Taran Wanderer & The High King.
aka The Chronicles of Prydain

My favorite series growing up.
