  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Billy Barefeet | 1/10/2014

    " Men and women are as different as night and day. Macdonald deftly illustrates just that in this wonderful fairy tale! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/9/2014

    " This is by far my favorite book, well its a short story actually. George MacDonald's languge is poetic and the characters are vivid. Its almost like a beautiful myth. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brynna | 12/15/2013

    " There is really no other word for this book other than beautiful. There are very few writers who can do fairy tales as well as George MacDonald. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle | 12/11/2013

    " I'd like to read this one again some day and see if my impression stands up to the test of time. I'm betting it won't. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawna | 12/7/2013

    " Super short and fable-ish. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 11/24/2013

    " MacDonald is always allegorical and what could be more allegorical than a boy raised entirely in light and a girl raised entirely in darkness. But I got to admit...I don't get it. Still, it's a charming fairytale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 alibrivoxfan | 11/3/2013

    " This is a charming story - and an excellent reader! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lara | 10/17/2013

    " I love the pictures that come with this book. I remember looking at them over and over when I was a kid. It was wonderful to introduce Daphne to them just the other week. She seemed to be just as enthralled with them as I was. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natalie | 5/22/2013

    " I got this book as a child and have since lost it. It's one of my favorite fairy tales. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Courtney Stoker | 5/12/2013

    " One of MacDonald's darker fairy tales, and one of my favorite. Lovely and interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lèrowen | 2/23/2013

    " I like this very much but I thought that is ended all quite suddenly. I feel he could have written much more in the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shani | 11/22/2011

    " I love the imagry. I love the thought of the river being alive and it has to be killed to drink or bathe in. very original "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amy | 8/3/2011

    " Read it if: it's given to you for free, you have nothing else to read or occupy your time, or you have to for a college literature course and you are going to have a test. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grace | 9/1/2010

    " That was incredibly sweet. :) Not surprised at all that Lewis Carroll liked this author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chandra | 6/4/2010

    " Perhaps my favorite fairy tale of all time! (I also love the same author's Light Princess). I have both in my beloved junior classics collection, but would love stand alone copies. Does anyone know if there are illustrated versions of either? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 12/11/2009

    " Beautiful allegory of how we fear the new and strange and how we can come to accept it. Though there were some parts that had difficult verses to understand. I do feel I may have enjoyed this better had their been more character and story development, rather than sticking to fairy talesque tellings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 11/2/2009

    " It was a cut little fairy tale! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carlajo Webb | 6/9/2009

    " The best first line ever written. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sherri | 3/12/2009

    " I chose this book because excerpts were in a recent YA dystopian book I read (The Enclave) and I was curious to read more. "

About the Author
Author George MacDonald

George MacDonald (1824–1905), Scottish children’s author and novelist, was educated at Aberdeen University before training as a Congregational minister. Finding his own individualistic views unacceptable to his parish, he gradually turned to literature. He published over fifty volumes of fiction, verse, children’s stories, and sermons but is remembered chiefly for his fairy stories, including The Princess and the Goblin (1872) and its sequel The Princess and Curdie (1873).
