THE PRINCESS AND THE GOBLIN....A CHILDREN'S FANTASY STORY THAT IS SUBPERB!!
In reading this story you will feel that you are a child again reading a wondrous story where anything can happen.
MacDonald knows magic and weaves magic in his tale. He also knows how Faerie and the realms of Faerie works. If you are a fan of Tolkien and have read many of his essays on the realm and you will recognize the strange laws of the realm that are difficult to put down to paper but you recognize them even if you can't communicate them yourself.

The story flows quickly and is lively as it revolves around the adventures of a little girl, the Princess Irene and at times the humble honest and wise miner boy Curdie. As they have their misadventures with the Goblins under the mountain you become aware of the guidance of Irene's mysterious and magical Great-Great Grandmother who wields a powerful yet subtle magic. She never takes a direct hand in things in this story but like a Fairy Godmother constantly helps Irene to help herself. The story is simply delightful.

Like a fairy tale from old there are many morals that are illustrated and one is shown the ways of right and wrong.

This is one of those rare books which is completely timeless, and where the characters are all good and brave and noble but still somehow real, and you are never quite sure precisely what is going to happen next but you know you must find out.
