Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com 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 --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

"I have never concealed the fact that I regarded him as my master; indeed I fancy I have never written a book in which I did not quote from him." —C. S. Lewis


"The Princess and the Goblin and The Princess and Curdie are two of the most unusual and haunting fairy tales ever written." —Guardian
