Overview

In this sequel to The Princess and the Goblin, Curdie has returned to his life as a miner and has dismissed the supernatural happenings of the past, believing them to have been a dream. When Curdie callously wounds a pigeon, his conscience leads him to Princess Irene's mystical great-great-grandmother for help. She has him plunge his hands into a pile of rose petals that burns like fire. Extraordinarily, this grants him the power to see what kind of "animal" a person is at heart.

She then sends him on a quest, accompanied by a peculiar doglike creature named Lina, who was once a human. However, Curdie must resolve his own skepticism before he can use the powers granted him to defeat the evil that is threatening the future of the kingdom.

With the help of a mysterious fairy queen who provides monstrous but gentle creatures to aid him, a miner's son takes on the dangerous task of helping the king and princess confound their enemies and save the kingdom.

    Terrific story, terrible format!

    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).

    a charming fairytale continued

    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!
