The Princess and Curdie by George MacDonald

The Princess and Curdie (Puffin Classics)The Princess and Curdie by George MacDonald
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Definitely not the same caliber as the first. This follows Curdie’s adventures in proving he is royal and worthy of marrying Princess Irene through the help of the Grandmother. The delightful fairy tale feeling does not carry through to this novel that feels more like a companion piece than a sequel. Curdie’s quest seems aimless and his actions are guided by a very didactic hand that felt like a step back from the progressiveness of his first title.

The ending is…something.
