Publisher's Summary

Noble Prince Jen is the one person that his father, King Ta'i, trusts enough to send on a mission to the legendary kingdom of Tien-Kuo. The prince eagerly begins his quest bearing only enormous pride and humble gifts. From the onset, however, the young ruler marches headlong into misfortune, miscreants, and unexpected adventure.
Separated from his faithful servant, the prince finds himself fending off murderers, falling prey to trickery, and searching for a village girl who plays a magic flute. But it isn’t until he faces his most challenging personal trial that the heroic traveler fully realizes the astonishing power hidden in each humble gift.
Steven Crossley’s narration of Newbery Medal-winner Lloyd Alexander’s remarkably inventive tale delivers all the mystery and magic that accompany the prince on his high adventure.

Entertaining, probably worth a listen

We liked this but didn't love it. It was certainly worth listening to and read a bit like lots of short stories. There was a comment at the end of each chapter which left us falling about laughing. In all, we were glad we listened to it but it wasn't a patch on his 'Taran' (Prydain) books. Why oh why don't thy make that whole series audiobooks rather than just the second one? That is probably my favourite series ever.
