Discovering the wonderful Christian fantasy of George MacDonald will be a joy for any fantasy lover. A contemporary of C.S. Lewis, MacDonald's wonderful "At the Back of the North Wind" will delight readers: it's especially wonderful read aloud to younger ones who may struggle with some of the language but love the story.
Centered around a young boy who meets the North Wind, the wonderful tale is difficult to follow at first, but well worth the initial effort. Reading this story of compassion, pain, and peace makes one cling to a simpler, more pure approach to our relationship with others and God Himself.
The lovely inclusion of poetry and song add to the epic style of this masterpiece that should be a part of every book-lover's collection.
This little book is retold by Dan Larson. It is a little book and much much shorter than the original.It has many comic style drawings. It is similar to the Illustrated Classic Editions.
This beautiful illustrated classic would be a GREAT Christmas stocking stuffer for your child!
