Biographie de l'auteur

George MacDonald (1824—1905) was a prolific writer, yet it is his fantasies for children that have survived. A minister of the Congregational church, MacDonald resigned after a disagreement with his deacons and from 1853 earned his living by lecturing and writing.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 beautiful in its simplicity 19 janvier 2002
Par William Krischke - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book reminded me a great deal of "The Little Prince" by Antoine Saint-Exubery, the main difference being that the underlying philosophy here is Christian, as opposed to the Easternish philosophy of the former book. Like "The Little Prince", it speaks quietly and simply of things that are so true we tend to overlook or forget them. Unlike the mentioned book, this one brings in harsher elements, such as poverty and abuse -- and shows how the simple wisdom of a child can overcome them. MacDonald's imagination is wonderful, and some of the dreams and fairy tales in the book almost outshine the "real" story. I love the children who dig for stars. This is one I enjoyed because it is so different, so simple and beautiful, and one I look forward to sharing with my children, should I ever have any.
PS - My sister read an edited, abridged version of this book, one rewritten to make it easier for children, and it was awful. It skipped whole chapters and left out some of the very best parts. I think kids can handle this book, just the way it was written. Stay away from nasty abridgements that are really censorship in disguise!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Maybe his finest children's work. 2 mars 2006
Par Q. McAuley - Publié sur Amazon.com
I love this book. I've read it 3 times, all as an adult. The fragility of life is portrayed in the person of little Diamond, an innocent, sickly child. Though MacDonald is occasionally preachy, (yet on target), he writes a story that will fill you with wonder and sorrow.

I so recommend this book. It is one of my top 5 favorite books of fiction.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Magical 28 octobre 2013

A charming and touching childrens novel that I didn’t discover until age 52, it was written in England by a former Congregationalist minister in the time of Queen Victoria . It is the story of a frail, impoverished child and his family facing difficult circumstances in Dickensian London. While on the surface it seems a simple story, it is a stylistically sophisticated mix of realism and surrealism with interposed extended dream passages, original fairy tales, and mantric nursery rhymes. Its clear purpose is in moral and religious education, written to affirm both the existence and goodness of God and the essential goodness of His creation. Never facile or preachy, the author confronts the presence of evil and adversity, and shows considerable psychological insight in the treatment of his characters.

I suspect that it would be difficult for today’s elementary students to read and understand the work without assistance because of its style and the alienness of its world. Older, more worldly and pseudo sophisticated middle schoolers may find it naïve or jejune. However I would encourage it for the special child and adults who still have some sense of wonder left in themselves.

This particular edition is handsome and an excellent value. The novel’s otherworldly magic is enhanced by the many original illustrations by preraphaelite artist, Arthur Hughes. I will be giving a copy to a right person this Christmas.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Insightful, simple beauty 9 juillet 2008
Par Julia Gwin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This book is handsomely made. The illustrations are lovely, the frontispiece elegant, the pages heavy and the print very dark and readable. The story itself is a work of powerful, simple, and beautiful truth. A very good read aloud and discussion book. The author's handling of the drunken cabman chapter is a wonder of insight and wisdom. What a powerful book of goodness, for child and adult alike.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Children? 14 juin 2014
Par JamesWorld - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
If this is a children's book I'm happy to finally have arrived. I am a grateful child at 67. Grateful for George MacDonald's heart that comes through so tenderly in this book. Grateful for his art in touching my heart so profoundly with his own. Grateful to the heart that lit the fire in his, and hopefully will keep it burning in mine. The story is powerfully and wonderfully told.
