    " This novel for children and adults describes a wise woman's involvement with a little princess and a little shepherd girl, one of whom becomes increases in goodness while the other becomes more selfish. Their parents, who spoil the girls terribly, are shown to be responsible for their inflated senses of self and bad behavior. It's a great fable for kids and parents. "

    " I read this as a loyal devotee of George MacDonald, and I especially love his allegorical children's fairy tales. Although this one was not my favorite, it was a beautiful picture of how a person can be completely transformed by Christ's perfect balance of mercy and justice. Also quite interesting in how the nature of selfishness is explored in the context of a young child... how reflective of the deepest part of our hearts. "

    " This one was not so great to me...but I have to admit that I couldn't find a copy of it so therefore listened to an audio recording of it. As a result the voice of the woman reading was pretty annoying over time and probably added to my distaste. "

    " I stayed up reading this under the covers when I was about five. Going back and rereading it recently, I found it more disturbing and thoughtful than I remembered it. "
