The Princess and the Goblin
The Princess Irene has been kidnapped by Goblins. And it is up to an unlikely hero, Curdie the Miner Boy, to save the day.
An amazing tale from one of the founders of modern fantasy, George MacDonald. Including illustrations from a late 19th century edition.
I chose this book because it was one of my very favorites as a child. I read it over and over and over again.
Sometimes, we forget about the classics or other books that have been around for a while. This is a wonderful story, one I've never forgotten. In fact, to this day I remember a particular scene every time I take a bath! Truthfully.
I have a beautiful copy of this book (it has other covers, but this is my favorite) waiting for the day my daughter is ready to read it. Hopefully, she'll enjoy it as much as I did.
