About the Book

Admired by J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis, and considered by W. H. Auden to be “the only English children’s book in the same class as the Alice books”, The Princess and the Goblin is a classic example of 19th-century children’s literary fairy tales.

This is an ageless story of courage and loyalty, beauty and honor, mystery and divinity, and above all, the conflict of good and evil.

The discovery of a secret stairway running to the top of the castle leads Princess Irene to a revelation even more weighty than the fiendish plans of the goblin community that miner boy Curdie has discovered.

Will the Princess and Curdie understand the significance of what they have found, or will Harelip and the goblins successfully execute their evil plan?
