PS - My sister read an edited, abridged version of this book, one rewritten to make it easier for children, and it was awful. It skipped whole chapters and left out some of the very best parts. I think kids can handle this book, just the way it was written. Stay away from nasty abridgements that are really censorship in disguise!
I so recommend this book. It is one of my top 5 favorite books of fiction.
I suspect that it would be difficult for today’s elementary students to read and understand the work without assistance because of its style and the alienness of its world. Older, more worldly and pseudo sophisticated middle schoolers may find it naïve or jejune. However I would encourage it for the special child and adults who still have some sense of wonder left in themselves.
This particular edition is handsome and an excellent value. The novel’s otherworldly magic is enhanced by the many original illustrations by preraphaelite artist, Arthur Hughes. I will be giving a copy to a right person this Christmas.

An intriguing read and probably good for those who already appreciate MacDonald as I do. As an introduction to his work, however, it may not be his best. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Don Moore
