A Tale to Believe without Seeing Young Princess Irene, sent away to the country to be raised in a place nestled into the side of a mountain that's half farmhouse and half castle, has stumbled into a conspiracy -- of Goblins! Really, Goblins! Their evil plot threatens the king and his palace and of course Irene and her friend and her great-great-grandmother (who is a witch, just for good measure). This book has been famous fun for generations, and you ought to come see why. Highly recommended. The sequel to this book is The Princess and Curdie.
