The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander is the first book in the Chronicles of Prydain, highly recommended by a number of friends of mine for (especially) boys. I enjoyed it and intend to pass it along to First Son once he's finished the couple of "assigned" books he has left for the school year. I think First Daughter will enjoy it as well.
Only two books! I have no explanation.
