The story is wonderful: full of delight, thoughtfulness, depth, engaging story, character development and emotional touchstones. HOWEVER--- this particular edition is terrible! The formatting is atrocious! There are hardly any margins, which makes it very hard to hold open to read, not to mention hard on the eyes. The font isn't the easiest to read, either. The illustrations are very nice, which is one reason I bought this edition, but there is no mention anywhere in the book of the illustrator's name. It feels like a cheaply made book. I wish I had bought a different edition. I would send this one back, but I have already opened it too far (I had a book club meeting that I had to read it for).

MacDonald is a master storyteller, though his books are sometimes hard to find! Make sure you read the book before it, 'The Princess and the Goblin', too!

The book was great. I found it a little hard to understand some of the phrases and wording, but I got the main point of the book. The only thing that made me take off the 5th star was the second half of the last chapter. The hole book seamed to be about setting things right, but at the very end of the last chapter, the plot takes a twist and everything that had been set right falls even farther apart.
