The Adventures of Curdie and Princess Irene continue in George MacDonald's classic sequel to The Princess and the Goblin.
Two years have passed since Curdie uncovered the goblins’ plot to kidnap the Princess. Now the king is deathly ill and a new threat is lurking inside the palace walls.
Join the Miner's son and an unlikely companion as they embark on a mission to save Princess Irene and her father from the plot to usurp the kingdom.
"In the first book, although offered a chance to go off with the King into another part of the country, Curdie chose to stay at home with his father and mother. Dear reader, I wonder what you would choose? Do you like the idea of staying close to home and family or are you hoping for a chance someday to go off to some faraway place?" ~ Timothy Larsen, Introduction

A fantastic old story. My family enjoyed this book so much!
My kids aren't crazy about the cover art, to be honest. And I'm less than impressed with the printing quality. When I compare the Puffin Classic of The Princess and the Goblin with this, it's a bit disappointing. Still, I'd rather buy from the good people at Canon than some screwloose who is selling print on demand copies through Amazon. These seem petty things, to be sure. I mean, the content is great and my children love MacDonald's writing. But, that would be true in any copy. I hope Canon will continue putting out editions of MacDonald's work. And maybe, look to see what other editions have done well?
