By George MacDonald
The best thing to do for one’s neighbor, George MacDonald once wrote, is “not to give him things to think about, but to wake things up that are in him; or say, to make him think things for himself.” In his many fairy tales and fantastical stories, MacDonald did just that. Across the three volumes of Collected Tales of George MacDonald are a grand total of twenty stories capable of regaling young and old alike—providing they bring the proper childlike spirit to their reading—with accounts of magic and mystery, of romance and adventure, of sorrow and joy in their fullest measures.
Volume II of Collected Tales of George MacDonald includes “The Shadows”; “The Giant’s Heart”; “The Cruel Painter”; “Cross Purposes”; “The Golden Key”; “The Gray Wolf”; “The Carasoyn”; and “Little Daylight.”
George MacDonald (1824–1905) was a Scottish author, poet, and clergyman. Recognized particularly for his fairy tales and fantasy novels, MacDonald inspired and influenced such literary masters as W. H. Auden, G. K. Chesterton, C. S. Lewis, and E. Nesbit.
