The Princess and Curdie
This book, considered a classic, is a sequel to The Princess and the Goblin, but it could definitely be read as a stand-alone. The story does not build much on the other story, and the beginning of the book gives a brief summary of the first book. The Princess and Curdie features a male main character (instead of a female like in The Princess and the Goblin). Like all of George MacDonald’s writings, this book is a little strange (not in a bad way—he just has a very creative imagination!), but it is very interesting, fun to read, very well written, and full of profound symbols and insightful messages.
