20 March 2020 | by pkortleversSee all my reviews

One of the best children/teen books of the 70's (and still interesting enough to read now, and irrespective of age as long as you like "medieval fantasy") is completely changed in pretty much every conceivable way so the only resemblance to the original is the title and some of the names.

The book (and its sequel) was critically acclaimed, winning all sorts of prices - and rightly so. It was a book about courage, friendship, endurance, and adventure - but they turned it into a Game of Thrones wannabe.

I encourage everyone to read the books and forget about this series.
