by George MacDonald
In 1857 George MacDonald wrote what he described as "a kind of fairy tale, in the hope that it will pay me better than the more evidently serious work." This was Phantastes, the captivating story of the narrator's adventures in fairyland, where he confronts tree spirits, sojourns to the palace of the fairy queen, and searches for the spirit of the earth. Available now in a new, larger paperback edition, this classic fairy tale, complete with an introduction by C.S. Lewis will thrill another generation of readers.
