Product Description


"What George MacDonald does best is fantasy--fantasy that hovers between the allegorical and the mythopoeic. And this, in my opinion, he does better than any man." - C S Lewis

About the Author

George MacDonald (1824-1905) was a great nineteenth-century innovator of modern fantasy, whose works influenced C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, and Charles Williams. ""I do not write for children,"" MacDonald once said, ""but for the childlike, whether of five, or fifty, or seventy-five.""

I love all of George MacDonald's fantasy stories. They are so artfully crafted and leave you feeling like a better person for reading them. If you love C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, etc, you will love MacDonald because he was the one who inspired them.
