"One of my all-time favorites"
This book has been a favorite since childhood, and continues to be as an adult. It is one of the very few books which I have read multiple times, always benefited from, and never wearied of. It is a book both young and old can enjoy--and learn from. For like C.S. Lewis who read much of George MacDonald, it has a deep meaning under the beautiful tale.
George McDonald is magical… As CS Lewis said, he was the master of the fairytale. There's something miraculous about his writing that calms and makes human thoughts move toward creative, delightful, heavenly mysteries in a way other storytellers cannot. Not your average fairytale.... medicine for the soul.
This is so much more than a children's book. I enjoyed and learned from it as an adult.
Fabulous story with hidden treasures. Readers of George McDonald will walk away changed, if they invest themselves.
"A must read!"
One of the best books ever written on parenting and life. What a changed country we would have if more read George McDonald. It is no wonder that he is one of C. S. Lewis's favorite authors and is honored by him in Lewis's Great Divorce.
