Book Description

Princess Irenes great-grandmother has a testing task for Curdie. He will not go alone though, as she provides him with a companion -- the oddest and ugliest creature Curdie has ever seen, but one who turns out to be the most loyal friend he could have hoped for.

    The sequel to the Princess and the Goblin, and I think I liked this one a bit more. It is interesting to read MacDonald's fiction while reading his nonfiction at the same time as there are numerous parallels to draw. Or, to put it another way, it is fun to see how he makes the same point in story and in essay. It is also continually interesting to see how different his fantasy is from later writers, but yet how the similarities set the stage.

    This is a strange, strange little book, and it was even stranger for me when I first read it without having read "The Princess and the Goblin". The religious allegories in the book now remind me of C.S. Lewis' "Perelandra" trillogy, and a lot of the rest is VERY dark for a children's book. There's a scene towards the end where a monster BITES OFF SOMEONE'S FINGER for crying out loud. People get maimed by teeth and roasted alive in a fire of roses. And the last page of the book is either the happiest unhappy ending, or the unhappiest happy ending, depending on how you read it.

    That said, I LOVED this book when I was growing up. The friendship between Curdie and the monster Lina is beautiful, and there's something VERY satisfying about a ragtag army of monsters taking on a city full of unpleasant people. And all of the strangeness just makes every chapter really, really interesting.
