The Light Princess Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The princess at her christening is cursed by a wicked witch with lightness. She floats blissfully about the castle all day long and, as one can imagine, gets into all sorts of adventures. Gravity, weight, sorrow, suffering — all of this the princess misses, but with all of these she misses love, for what is love without weight, without falling?

Review:

"The author's story demonstrated the power of love through the prince's selflessness and the princess's tears. This fairy tale has endured the test of time." Children's Literature

Synopsis:

This newly illustrated set of four paperbacks holds the complete fantasy stories (except for several longer stories readily available elsewhere) of George MacDonald.The Light PrincessThe Giant's HeartThe CarasoynPort in a StormPapa's Story (A Scot's Christmas Story)

Synopsis:

The Light Princess--the princess who "lost her gravity"--has been essential fiction for several generations of children. This new edition is a companion volume (same page size, similar design) to our edition of The Golden Key, of which Publishers' Weekly said: "Maurice Sendak lights the way through MacDonald's Kingdom with the most mystical, the most poetic pictures of his distinguished career." Now Sendak has made the pictures The Light Princess always deserved to have.

This is the only separate edition available that preserves the authentic text; it is neither cut nor edited nor "improved" in any way.
