Loved this book
Read it with my 10 yr old daughter and we loved it! It’s a story and poetry she said. It’s true and such lovely timeless truths everyone can relate to. Wonderful to read with kids. She is captured by each of his books.
This is a beautiful sequel to The Princess and The Goblin and is a warning to those who recognize truth: diligence, obedience and most importantly trust, is what makes a good servant.
The Princess and Curdie
Author does an excellent job of using the beauty of fantasy to make palatable the realities of the human condition. Quite sobering and timeless the truths.
