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 Curdie overhears a fiendish plot by the goblins that live below the mountain. But it will take all their wit and courage, and the help of Irene’s magic ring, to make sense of their separate knowledge and foil the goblins’ schemes.

Quotes & Awards

  • “As always with George MacDonald, everything here is more than meets the eye: this in fact is MacDonald’s grace-filled vision of the world. Said to be one of J.R.R. Tolkien’s childhood favorites, The Princess and the Goblin is the story of the young Princess Irene, her good friend Curdie—a minor’s son—and Irene’s mysterious and beautiful great-great-grandmother, who lives in a secret room at the top of the castle stairs. Filled with images of dungeons and goblins, mysterious fires, burning roses, and a thread so fine as to be invisible and yet—like prayer—strong enough to lead the princess back home to her grandmother’s arms, this is a story of Curdie’s slow realization that sometimes, as the princess tells him, ‘you must believe without seeing.’ Simple enough for reading aloud to a child, it’s rich enough to repay endless delighted readings for the adult.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “An enchanting and enthusiastic performance by Brooke Heldman reveals the magical world of this classic. As a miner’s boy helps Princess Irene escape from threatening goblins, Heldman’s buttery voice and gentle lilt create a bedtime-story quality in her narration. She skillfully captures the surprising and suspenseful moments with speedier pacing or drawn-out words. Her range of vocalizations brings out the youth and charm of the princess while also highlighting the darkness of the goblins without being too frightening. Crystal-clear audio quality, in addition to Heldman’s crisp articulation, adds to the allure of this timeless tale. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
