My children and I listened to this book in the car. We loved it so much I was inspired to buy The Princess and Curdie, because we wanted to know what happened to the characters.
We highly recommend this one. The narrator is excellent.

I believe that this book is a great book for children to learn friendship and bravery. The author writes in a way children under five or six years old can understand. This book is a great book for a family to read together, it is a fun, entertaining,and a page-turner book.

As an adult I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it is a lovely tale, if a litle moral in places and not necessarily suitable for under-sevens (bit of wanton Goblin death involved), but otherwise a very enjoyable listen.

Would you listen to The Princess and the Goblin again? Why?
The story is lovely, sweet and yet profound.
What other book might you compare The Princess and the Goblin to, and why?
At the back of the North Wind, only because no one can write quite like George MacDonald and At the Back of the North Wind is one of his works that are more similar The Princess and the Goblin and The Princess and Curdie Books
Have you listened to any of Ian Whitcomb’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Ian Whitcomb also did the Princess and Curdie and he is great in both!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The part where Princess Irene gets Curdie out of the his prison in the goblin palace, I love the concept of a true princess not being afraid of hard work but simply working until its done.
Any additional comments?
This story and Ian Whitcomb's recording of it is one of my absolute favorite audio books.
