The Princess and Curdie



To me, The Princess and Curdie earned George MacDonald a place as one of the elite masters of fantasy fiction, for, even before this adventure book--written mainly for children--he had established himself as an author for all ages with novels ranging from the beautifully descriptive At the Back of the North Wind to David Elginbrod, in Scottish dialect. As a sequel to The Princess and the Goblin, Curdie's adventures continue; this time uncovering a plot to destroy a mine by all means possible, his quest aided by the Princess' great-great-great-great-great-grandmother (or something to that effect), who is also a good hand at magic.--Submitted by Nosnivel Miarhpe
