A beloved children's classic by George MacDonald, in its original, unaltered form. This is the original version, which begins, "Th...ere was once a little princess who— "But, Mr. Author, why do you always write about princesses?" "Because every little girl is a princess." "You will make them vain if you tell them that." "Not if they understand what I mean." "Then what do you mean?" "What do you mean by a princess?" "The daughter of a king." "Very well, then every little girl is a princess, and there would be no need to say anything about it, except that she is always in danger of forgetting her rank, and behaving as if she had grown out of the mud. I have seen little princesses behave like the children of thieves and lying beggars, and that is why they need to be told they are princesses. And that is why, when I tell a story of this kind, I like to tell it about a princess. Then I can say better what I mean, because I can then give her every beautiful thing I want her to have." "Please go on." Sadly, at an unknown time, a person or persons unknown, decided to excise a few passages from this book, including the one above. The reasons for these excisions are unclear. We are one of the very few publishers of this classic to offer the original, unexpurgated version. Why buy the Rossignol Books edition? It is neither a photocopy nor an OCR. It is properly edited and formatted: paragraphs are justified. It includes all the original illustrations by Arthur Hughes. The young Princess Irene lives in a castle on top of a mountain, the miner boy Curdie lives in a hut on the side of the mountain, and the wicked goblins live inside the mountain. One day, Curdie is working in the mines, when he hears the goblins hatching a sinister plot to kidnap the princess. Now it's up to Irene and Curdie to foil the goblins' plans, and the only person who can help them is Irene's great-great-grandmother.
