Excellent spiritual allegory well read

We thoroughly enjoyed the story with our three youngest children (5-7-10) while driving to visit family in Florida. Very interesting at several different levels.

A Classic Adventure Charmingly Narrated

One could easily imagine being told this story by a grown up Irene. Brooke Heldman does a fine job, creating a voice for each character, and clearly narrating the sentences between. I have trouble reading books myself, from headaches to dyslexia that have only gotten worse over the years. So my childhood copy of this book sits on the shelf, but I will be listening to this version again and again.

The Princess and The Goblin is one of my rereads.... Stories I reread at least once per year....though this one usually gets re-listened to more often. I love following Curdie into the mountain and the Princess up the stairs to meet her many greats, very old, grandmother who let the princess have her name and shines a moon like light to guide wayward travelers and birds alike. A timeless tale for all ages.
