The gift of handmade

fairy tales

My friend Andrea recently lent me this awesome book:

I fell in love. And then she lent us a few more, and everyone in the house is reading them. They’re magical, and George MacDonald is a wizard.

Did you know that he influenced W.H. Auden, Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, E. Nesbit, and Madeleine L’Engle? (gasp!) He was also the person who helped convince Lewis Carroll to submit Alice for publication. (double gasp!)

“I write, not for children, but for the child-like, whether they be of five, or fifty, or seventy – five.”


I’m going to the Dreaming now.
