Deep in the mountain

by KLILALY on Sep 8, 2011

A children's book suitable for a ten year old with some imagination. I found that too much of the story was underground in the dark.

I remember reading this as a chid in an old book with engravings. I enjoyed it almost as much this time through so many years later but I do miss the old engravings. This story is a pleasant fantasy for the youth without the twistedness or bad attitudes so prevalent in much of what I have read for young people in recent years. Written in the 1800's the children are polite and considerate, generally obedient to the authorities over them whether a "nurse" or a parent.


Wonderful fairy tale!

I read this book as a kid and am now reading it to my class of 3rd and 4th graders. It's a wonderful old story about a princess and a young boy who save a kingdom. The kids LOVE it and can't wait to hear more every day.


Not as Cool as the Cover Would Make You Think

by Chiroptera on Feb 26, 2009

This is supposed to be something of a classic; an early example of "Christian" fantasy, but the truth is that it's dull as could be and conveys about as many Christianly values as a cup of tea. The story is nonsensical and uninspiring, and the heroes are just as flat as the villians. I suppose if the reader is in fourth grade or lower they might find some enjoyment in the story, but it galls to no end that the main character--the princess- is practically useless, unintelligent, and depends upon boys and maids to do the hard work for her.
