Author Bio

George MacDonald (1824-1905) was a minister who was rejected by his congregation, and struggled thereafter to support his family of eleven children by writing. In his own day he was celebrated as poet, preacher, and lecturer, and as the author of numerous novels. He is best known today for his vivid children's stories. U. C. Knoepflmacher has published widely on children's literature and the Victorian period.

    The Princess and Curdie, sequel to The Princess and the Goblin, is a wonderful book by George MacDonald. It encompasses and depicts important qualities and character traits that we all should possess, in a way that is quite memorable. I highly recommend George MacDonald's books. It may seem to be a fairy tale on the surface, but there is so much more to the story than meets the eye. Every time you read it different meanings and parallels will come to light.

    Though less well-known than its predecessor, The Princess and the Goblin, this book is another true gem from a great writer. I especially enjoy seeing Irene's change from a sweet, but rather babyish girl to a young woman of strength and integrity; I also love the ever-present MacDonald themes of selflessness, honor, and love through deeds. Besides all this, Curdie's ability to tell which animals people are really like always gives me pause... what would I be?So read this book if you love George MacDonald, or if you've never read his work before; read it because it's a beautiful, insightful story that anybody can enjoy and benefir from.
