FISHING THE DEEPER HE WENT INTO THE WOODS, the more there were shadows. Overhead, the interlaced branches made a kind of roof that the sun only occasionally broke through. y flitted over fallen leaves, settling at last on a patch of ivy. By the side of the path, bittersweet berries were already half changed from green to scarlet and the flooring of bracken was an autumnal copper brown. He liked the sound his feet made as he walked, a soft crunching. Turning his face toward the yellowing tree roof, he drew in a deep breath. He should have been worried.

Merlin, now twelve years old, begins to come into his magic while being held captive by a band of wild folk
Jane Yolen writes in a simple, yet poetic style. It does not include any baby talk, potty humor, or other annoying characteristics found in some modern children's literature. Rather, this book/series, like her other work, transports you to another land. It has the air of classic fairy tales, but is accessible to even the youngest reader. I think that the Merlin series is good for children 9 and up. She has another book, a picture book, that I recommend, too; Child of Fairy, Child of Earth. Jane Yolen always has quality, classy, beautifully written work.
A fitting conclusion to the "Merlin" trilogy, beautifully written but less like a nature poem than it's predecessor. Still laden with hints of the future, "Merlin" is a wonderful brief read.
Merlin escapes from angry dogs, pulled to safety by one of the wodewose, wild men and women who have their dwellings out in the forests. Despite the name, they are relatively civilized, but recognize the amazing talents that Merlin possesses. He sometimes dreams (in a weird sort of way) of the future, and in one astounding scene he uses his powers to heal. These events lead both to a shattering conclusion -- and a fateful meeting with a tiny boy named Cub.
Merlin is more mature in this book, having learned about greed and deception and wanting neither of them. There are hints at the end of his future mentoring of Arthur and additionally a twist in his traditional role.
The writing style is as evocative as ever, poetic and almost dreamy, bringing every described image to life. If I can someday write half as well as Ms. Yolen, I will be very happy.
This book by Jane Yolen is the third book of the young Merlin Trilogy. This book tells the tale of Merlin's childhood. Merlin is a young boy determined to never grow up, but on his journey he finds a boy who will grow up to be the great King Arthur. The tale's setting is around 500 A.D. and it is normally in a forest, meadow, or a camp. Instead of the common story of Arthur growing up in a cave with Merlin or growing up in Sir Ector's home this story says that Arthur was the child of a wodewose or wild man and that he left home with the young Merlin.
I would recommend this book to young kids ages thirteen and under. This story would not be interesting to adults because it is extremely easy to read and is meant for children. Another reason I recommend this book to kids is that it is written in a way that kids can understand. I think this was an excellent book

This book is the third book in the Merlin Trilogy, there are two other book. This novel covers Melin's childhood. In the time of the 500's it is set in a dark forest in a meadow. Hawk Hobby as a child received a bird as a guide named Dolly. While trapped in the meadow he seemed to had many dreams throughout the long nights, that is how he got his name Dreamer. Rather than having Sir Ector as a guardian in the original story, he had a foster father that took care of him through his childhood in the book. It seems as if nothing may or could tear apart the friendship of Dolly and Merlin.
In my opinion this book would be recommended for middle school and under. To me it wasn't that great of a book, but it was short and sweet. If you are looking for a book to learn about background information on Arthurian History this isn't a good book for that reason.
Keep in mind, this is a children's trilogy! I read them as bedtime stories over a three day period, one a night, and thoroughly enjoyed them! They offer a new perspective on the origins of Merlin but not so much so that you can't accept the possibilities. The language and phrasing seem a little old-fashioned for the modern young reader but it gives the story a sort-of Dark Ages ambience. They're a great introduction to the legends of Merlin and King Arthur for children.
This book was all that I expected from Jane Yolen and her talents as a n author. She intricately weaved mere folk lore and the arts of falconery to bring up one of the most powerful characters of the medieval period. So has she succeeded in making it a classic and one to be read by all ages. She so has brought of a trilogy for children to read and fantazise of a being that only existed in tales of glory and powers beyond the reaches of mans tempest of power. Only in her tale does Merlin so humbly change from name to name seeking refuge in each chosen identity to find ultimatly the truth and power that is within him. I therefore give this book and trilogy a two thumbs.
Young Merlin finally finds his place with the wodewose forest folk who value his gift of prophecy.
This was a good book in that it concluded the series. Don't read this book until you have read the first two.
