Review: The Princess and Curdie (Princess Irene and Curdie #2)

User Review  - Barnabas Piper - Goodreads

I do believe this is better than The Princess and the Goblin in some ways. Less fairy tale and more fable, and so poignantly powerful. Just a beautiful book. Read full review

Review: The Princess and Curdie (Princess Irene and Curdie #2)

User Review  - Nicholas Kotar - Goodreads

The Princess and Curdie is one of my five favorite books of all time. Really. The perfect blend of fairy tale, romance (yes, romance!), morality play, allegory, adventure, and poetry. All of MacDonald's books are beautiful, but this one tops them all. Highly recommended. Read full review
