(4.4 stars; 47 reviews)

A boy named Photogen, who has never seen the moon, meets a girl named Nycteris, who has never seen the sun. The two of them must escape from the witch Watho. As usual with George MacDonald, this fairy tale has layers of meaning that go deeper than the story on the surface. (summary by L.A. Walden)

It is so nice to see MacDonald's work here in the archive. This tale, which I had never heard of, is just wonderful. Well read by a single reader.

Charming story. Listen once and enjoy then listen twice for another layer of meaning and then thrice for wonderful insights. A joy and very well read indeed. Listened to in Tegucigalpa with gratitude
