Sir Gibbie By George MacDonald
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Download immediately.
Scottish author George MacDonald wrote Sir Gibbie in 1879, and though the novel is less well-known than his popular fantasy stories Lillith and Phantases, it is cited as his best work by many fans.... More > MacDonald was an inspiration for writer of children's fiction such as C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkein, Madeline L'Engle, Lewis Carroll, and even Mark Twain. Lovers of Narnia and Alice will appreciate the genuine characters and moral lessons of Sir Gibbie, a compelling story of an impoverished, mute boy in Scotland. Raised by an abusive and alcoholic father, Gibbie is a kind-hearted youngster handed a tough lot. He copes beautifully, though, with help from his friend Janet, and in the end performs an act of genuine forgiveness. Sir Gibbie will expose children (and parents) to the cruelty of the world while simultaneously presenting them with a role model of mercy and grace. This powerful book is a powerful example of a heroic character who is truly good. -Abby Zwart, CCEL Staff Writer< Less
