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 nineteenth-century children's literary fairy tales. This is an ageless tale of courage and loyalty, beauty and mystery, and above all, good and evil.The discovery of a secret stairway running to the top of the castle where she lives leads Princess Irene to a revelation even more weighty than the fiendish plans of the goblin community that Curdie, a miner boy, 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?
