About the Author

George MacDonald (10 December 1824 – 18 September 1905) was a Scottish author, poet, and Christian minister. He was a pioneering figure in the field of fantasy literature and the mentor of fellow writer Lewis Carroll. His writings have been cited as a major literary influence by many notable authors including W. H. Auden, C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, E. Nesbit and Madeleine L'Engle. C. S. Lewis wrote that he regarded MacDonald as his "master": "Picking up a copy of Phantastes one day at a train-station bookstall, I began to read. A few hours later," said Lewis, "I knew that I had crossed a great frontier." G. K. Chesterton cited The Princess and the Goblin as a book that had "made a difference to my whole existence". Elizabeth Yates wrote of Sir Gibbie, "It moved me the way books did when, as a child, the great gates of literature began to open and first encounters with noble thoughts and utterances were unspeakably thrilling." Even Mark Twain, who initially disliked MacDonald, became friends with him, and there is some evidence that Twain was influenced by MacDonald. Christian author Oswald Chambers (1874–1917) wrote in Christian Disciplines, vol. 1, (pub. 1934) that "it is a striking indication of the trend and shallowness of the modern reading public that George MacDonald's books have been so neglected". --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Once again MacDonald has somehow pierced my own heart with the light of truth. It is with sadness I see I am too much like the wretched characters in this book. Lord, please mend me.

I was feeling a little inundated by all the technology flooding our household, and decided to take a step back with George MacDonald. Only one mind you, I did buy it on my Kindle! Anyway, I had to explain the no pictures problem to my children, but they picked up on it quickly. He is such a descriptive writer, and the story is very relatable and can be a very good learning tool if you have anyone who is acting up. Definite recommendation, as well as his The Princess and the Goblin and The Princess and Curdie!

I have been a fan of George Macdonald since youth, but this book was a surprising treat, I had never heard of it but truly enjoyed even more then many of his other works.
