Princess Irene's discovery of a secret stair to the top turret of the castle leads to a wonderful revelation. At the same time, the miner's son Curdie overhears a fiendish plot by the goblins who live below the mountain. But it will take all their wit and courage, and the help of Irene's magic ring, to make sense of their separate knowledge and foil the goblins' schemes.
Although quite a young storyline/plot, the vocab is quite advanced.
An interesting book, which I enjoyed reading, but which I wouldn't read again. It is funny, because it is quite a simplistic storyline/plot, but has quite difficult vocab. It didn't get my heart racing (a sign of a good book!), but still, worth a read.
Interesting book. I'm an a 12 year old and I didn't understand it all. I would suggest reading it from 13 upwards.
