The Prydain Chronicles are a fantasy classic equally worth re-visiting or discovering for the first time. Whether you're new to fantasy (hello, Rick Riordan fans!) or a weathered veteran, this series provides all the magic and fellowship of Lord of the Rings as it deftly crafts its story from the bones of Welsh mythology. For bonus points: I'm pretty sure Princess Eilonwy is the original Hermione Granger.
