George MacDonald (1824–1905) was a Scottish novelist and poet whose works influenced such great writers as C. S. Lewis and G. K. Chesterton. MacDonald was the author of over fifty books, including novels, stories, and poems, and was one of the best-loved authors of his day. Among his better-known children’s stories are At the Back of the North Wind (1872), The Princess and the Goblin (1872), and Sir Gibbie (1879).
Sir Gibbieby George MacDonald, Patrick Wynne (Illustrator), Kathryn Ann Lindskoog (Editor)
Follow Sir Gibbie on his adventures through the moors of Scotland's Highlands more than a century ago. Motherless, and with an alcoholic father, Gibbie must survive on the streets as a child unable to read or speak. See how this boy wins the hearts of his neighbors and offers what little he has to help others. “If anyone wants to be first, he shall be last of all, and servant of all.” (Mark 9:35) Sir Gibbie teaches adults and children alike about sacrificing self and striving for a world more honest and pure than our own.
