Overview

In a young readers’ world dominated by Harry Potter and hobbits, Christian parents and educators are looking for fantastic tales that nourish children’s spiritual development. Faerie Gold appeals to the imagination while directing hearts and minds toward truth and integrity. This collection is ideal for independent reading, family story hour, and classroom use. The book contains twenty-two fairytales and fantasies and is designed to awaken the reader’s imagination and direct it toward God’s light. Authors include George MacDonald, Louisa May Alcott, Hans Christian Anderson, Christina Rossetti, and others. Also included are biographical notes, a collection of quotations, and a message to parents about the value of fairytales and fantasy.

Editorial Reviews

Leland Ryken
C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien affirmed the power of fairy stories to educate the imagination and moral sensibility. FAERIE GOLD is a magnificent testimonial to the correctness of their judgment. There is something here for everyone. FAERIE GOLD is first and foremost a book for children. But as all the greatest writers of fairy stories have insisted, adults never tire of the really great fairy stories. In addition to the anthology of classic fairy tales, the editors have crowned their achievement with two sections at the end of the book that make it even more of a treasure—an essay defending fantasy and fairy stories and a collection of choice quotations on those same subjects.
