Lloyd Alexander is one of my favorite authors - read this one and you'll see why. First: the story carries you along with it. Second: It provides a wonderful explanation of the craft of story making and telling. Third: It's based on those myths which are universal throughout our world - from Greece, Rome, and Crete but also from American Indians and Europe and probably a lot more I couldn't identify. Through in a dash of the more modern ones like Wizard of Oz and The Lord of the Rings and this story is a truly interesting, magnificently well done narrative.
