George MacDonald’s fairy stories and fantasy have inspired a number of writers including C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien and of this popular fairy story, which as you might suspect concerns a little princess plotted against by a race of goblins, G.K. Chesterton said that it “made a difference to my whole existence.”
We couldn't stop listening to this, what a joy!
amazing! has a writing stile like CS Lewis, really good story line and love the Scottish accent of the reader. thanks so much to the readers for the time they take.
This is a gem of a recording of the story I discovered as a 10 years old in CA. Now I live in Appalachia and the changing shadow,sunlight, mountains,and streams are just like that.
Like Andy's voice a lot- he must be an actor. Thank you Andy
This is the best reader! And the book is good to!
I LOVE this book I would recommend to all my friends! The reader was AWESOME! I want Andy Minter to do The Princess and Curdie as well he is a LOT better than the other readers I have heard! Thanks!
A real home theatre, pleasure to listen! Many thanks
This story is rich in characters, settings, and story, with deep undertones of morals. Great for children and adults. The reader Andy Minter has a wonderful grandfatherly voice that goes perfectly with the mood of this story.
This was a very good story, and I recommend it for children and adults alike. The reader kept the story rhythm quite well and allowed you to get lost in the story itself.
Fantastic reading of a good story. 5 stars!
