Publisher Comments:

A little princess is protected by her friend Curdie from the goblin miners who live beneath the castle.

Synopsis:

Princess Irene lives in a castle in a wild and lonely mountainous region. One day she discovers a steep and winding stairway leading to a bewildering labyrinth of unused passages with closed doors - and a further stairway. What lies at the top?

Synopsis:

Princess Irene's discovery of a secret stair to the top turret of the castle leads to a wonderful revelation. At the same time, the miner's son Curdle overhears a fiendish plot by the goblins who live below the mountain. It will take all of their wit and courage, plus the help of Irene's magic ring, to make sense of their separate knowledge and foil the goblins' schemes.

I really enjoyed reading this book and am looking forward to reading the sequel. George MacDonald is a really good author and is good at giving descriptions that help you to visualize the story and bring you into the world of the book. I felt that he did a great job of developing the plot and characters and helping the reader understand the mentality of his characters as well as their motives. This was a very enjoyable read.

I remember reading this as a child and being totally enchanted by the story of the princess, her mysterious fairy godmother, goblin kidnapppers and the brave miner boy who rescues her. It is a truly old-fahioned and magical fairy tale.
