REEDSY lists Patricia A. McKillip’s THE FORGOTTEN BEASTS OF ELD as #13 in their 60 Best Fantasy Books of All Time.

With its elegant language and lovingly rendered heroine, The Forgotten Beasts of Eld has won the love of readers young and old alike — it’s a book that feels richer with every rereading. 

In his September 2019 Reading Wrap Up, FinalBlowJoe raves about the book (beginning at 8:40).

The description of Call for papers Spring 2020: Quests: Magical Journeys and Wayside Attractions has nice shout out.

The realm of mythopoetics and speculative fiction, popular dramas,
and the ancient art of the story-song. From the ancient texts of Inanna,
the wonder tales of the Mabinogion and Troyes’ Sainte Grail cycle, to
Baum’s Land of Oz and Tolkien’s Hobbits, to the very modern American
Gods, or McKillip’s THE FORGOTTEN BEASTS OF ELD the tale of the quest
and journeys into the realm of magic and wonder are part and parcel of
the art of storytellers.
