Eight-year-old Princess Irene lives a lonely life in a castle in a wild, desolate, mountainous kingdom, with only her nursemaidLootiefor company. Her father the king is normally absent, and her mother is dead. Unknown to her, the nearby mines are inhabited by a race of goblins, long banished from the kingdom and now anxious to take revenge on their human neighbors.

One rainy day, the princess explores the castle and discovers a beautiful, mysterious lady, who identifies herself as Irenes namesake and great-great-grandmother. The adventure continues with Princess Irene and Curdie a year or two older. They must overthrow a set of corrupt ministers who are poisoning Irenes father, the king. Irenes grandmother also reappears and gives Curdie a strange gift. A monster called Lina aids his quest.George MacDonald (1824-1905) was a Scottish author, poet, and Christian minister.
