In this sequel to the classic fantasy The Princess and the Goblin, Curdie is given a strange gift: he can read a person's character by touching their hands. But he's not sure what good that is when the kingdom starts falling apart. Along with his trusty monster, Curdie must decide what to believe, who to help, and who to fight when the king grows mysteriously sick and the princess is helpless. Enjoyable for all ages, The Princess and Curdie is a clever fable of falsehood versus truth and appearance versus reality.

"Most myths were made in prehistoric times, and, I suppose, not consciously made by individuals at all. But every now and then there occurs in the modern world a genius...who can make such a story. MacDonald is the greatest genius of this kind whom I know." --C. S. Lewis

"Surely, George MacDonald is the grandfather of us all--all of us who struggle to come to terms with truth through fantasy." --Madeleine L'Engle

"The magical, the fairy story...may be a vehicle of mystery. This is what George MacDonald attempted, achieving stories of power and beauty." --J.R.R. Tolkien
