Review:

As always with George MacDonald, everything here is more than meets the eye: this in fact is MacDonald's grace-filled vision of the world. Said to be one of J.R.R. Tolkien's childhood favorites, The Princess and the Goblin is the story of the young Princess Irene, her good friend Curdie--a minor's son--and Irene's mysterious and beautiful great great grandmother, who lives in a secret room at the top of the castle stairs. Filled with images of dungeons and goblins, mysterious fires, burning roses, and a thread so fine as to be invisible and yet--like prayer--strong enough to lead the Princess back home to her grandmother's arms, this is a story of Curdie's slow realization that sometimes, as the princess tells him, "you must believe without seeing." Simple enough for reading aloud to a child (as I've done myself more than once with my daughter), it's rich enough to repay endless delighted readings for the adult. --Doug Thorpe

About the Author:

George MacDonald is considered one of the most important Christian authors of all time. His works include over twenty novels, many theological and critical works, and several volumes of poetry. But it is his stories for children that have endured the test of time. These works influenced many writers — including C.S. Lewis, who considered MacDonald his mentor, and J.R.R. Tolkien, who used MacDonald’s work as “a measuring stick” for his own writing in The Lord of the Rings.
