The Princess and the Goblin is a magnificent book by George MacDonald. I enjoyed this book thoroughly and it's sequel The Princess and Curdie. You can't just read one without the other! A wonderful fairy tale, but beneath the fairy tale lies much more meaning than at first may appear.

Review 2 for The Princess and the Goblin
EXCELLENT FOR BOTH YOUNG AND OLD.

AFTER READING FOR MYSELF, I ESPECIALLY ENJOY READING THIS BOOK TO MY GRANDCHILDREN. ITS COMPOSITION IS BOTH MEANINGFUL AND CHALLENGING FOR ME AND THEM [AGE 8 THRU 14]. IT TAKES PLACE IN THE 1800'S, BUT THE MORAL VALUE HAS A STRONG MESSAGE FOR TODAY.
