Summary: Now a Musical with Music from Tori Amos! “One day [the prince] lost sight of his retinue in a great forest. These forests are very useful in delivering princes from their courtiers, like a sieve that keeps back the bran. Then the princes get away to follow their fortunes. In this they have the advantage of the princesses, who are forced to marry before they have had a bit of fun. I wish our princesses got lost in a forest sometimes.” ― George MacDonald, The Light Princess When a princess is cursed to lose her "gravity" she loses both her wit and her ability to keep her feet on the ground. This short (43 page) novel makes an enjoyable read for children and adults alike.

Summary: George MacDonald occupied a major position in the intellectual life of his Victorian contemporaries. This volume brings together all eleven of his shorter fairy stories as well as his essay "The Fantastic Imagination". The subjects are those of traditional fantasy: good and wicked fairies, children embarking on elaborate quests, and journeys into unsettling dreamworlds. Within this familiar imaginative landscape, his children's stories were profoundly experimental, questioning the association of childhood with purity and innocence, and the need to separate fairy tale wonder from adult scepticism and disbelief.

When a witch isn’t invited to a royal christening, she curses the child with a “loss of gravity.” The young princess constantly floats on air and can only find relief while in water. Due to her circumstance, she remains figuratively and literally distant. This becomes a greater problem when her family discovers the only way to break the curse is through tears. The princess must experience the power of love and loss before she can finally be free. . The Light Princess is one of George MacDonald’s most notable works. It’s been adapted across multiple mediums including a musical with songs from award-winning artist, Tori Amos. It’s a children’s tale that delivers a compassionate message with a unique narrative.

Summary: George MacDonald’s Victorian fairy tales transformed the genre of fantasy. His work also shaped the next generation of both children’s literature and modernism: C.S. Lewis regarded MacDonald as a major influence, and writers as diverse as G.K Chesterton and W.H. Auden acknowledged his significance. His best known story for children, The Princess and the Goblin, tells the story of a lonely child princess and her friend, a brave miner boy, in their battle with subterranean monsters. Along with The Princess and the Goblin, this edition includes four other major fairy stories by MacDonald, as well as a selection of historical documents on the works’ composition and reception, Victorian fairy tales, and MacDonald’s literary criticism.

Summary: A rare discovery in the world of fairy tales—now for the first time in English Move over, Cinderella: Make way for the Turnip Princess! And for the “Cinderfellas” in these stories, which turn our understanding of gender in fairy tales on its head. With this volume, the holy trinity of fairy tales—the Brothers Grimm, Charles Perrault, and Hans Christian Andersen—becomes a quartet. In the 1850s, Franz Xaver von Schönwerth traversed the forests, lowlands, and mountains of northern Bavaria to record fairy tales, gaining the admiration of even the Brothers Grimm. Most of Schönwerth's work was lost—until a few years ago, when thirty boxes of manu­scripts were uncovered in a German municipal archive. Now, for the first time, Schönwerth's lost fairy tales are available in English. Violent, dark, and full of action, and upending the relationship between damsels in distress and their dragon-slaying heroes, these more than seventy stories bring us closer than ever to the unadorned oral tradition in which fairy tales are rooted, revolutionizing our understanding of a hallowed genre. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,500 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Summary: When two girls—a princess and a shepherd’s daughter—are captured by a mysterious woman, they must face the ugly truth about their harmful behavior. Despite drastically different backgrounds, both girls have become cruel and disobedient youths. Rosamond is a young princess who shares a birthday with Agnes, a shepherd’s daughter. They grew up with contrasting lifestyles but manage to develop the same negative habits. Both girls are spoiled by their parents and become self-centered bullies who hurt everyone in their path. On different occasions, a wise woman grabs each girl and brings them to her magical cottage. She forces them to acknowledge their wrongdoing and attempts to teach them a better way of life. While one girl embraces change, the other remains stagnant forcing them to finally come to ahead. A Double Story uses classic fairy tale tropes in an unconventional way. Its message of empathy and hope is told through vivid storytelling and romantic images. It’s a cautionary tale about the dangers of self-indulgence and the need for structure and love. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of A Double Story is both modern and readable.

Summary: Alfred David and Mary Elizabeth Meek have compiled a collection of fairy tales that ranges from the Grimm brothers' inimitable recreations of archetypal folktales to the modern prose charm of James Thurber's Many Moons.

Many are in new translations in the modern idiom and all testify eloquently to the unceasing vitality of this literary genre.

Summary: The North Wind takes a young boy along on her many adventures in this classic Victorian fantasy novel by the author who inspired Lewis Carroll. Diamond is a charming young boy who spreads joy wherever he goes. But while he is accustomed to getting along well with others, he never expected to befriend the very wind howling through his bedroom. A mysterious and beautiful spirit, the North Wind soon invites Diamond to fly with her across the countryside as she performs her many tasks. Though Diamond is captivated by his magical adventures with the North Wind, he is also confused by her behavior. While she does many positive things for people, some of her actions seem terrible. Could it be true that what appears to be harmful—even sinking a ship—is ultimately done for good? At the Back of the North Wind is one of the most beloved works by nineteenth-century children’s book writer George MacDonald, who inspired a number of other notable authors, including Lewis Carroll, J. M. Barrie, and L. Frank Baum.
