Listen can hear magic in the wind!

Diamond lives in a hayloft. But that was all right with him. He loves to snuggle up to the horses at night and listen to them snore away. Sometimes he can even hear the stars twinkling in the sky.

One night Diamond is visited by a beautiful fairy with long flowing hair. She calls herself North Wind, and she lives in the enchanged land far, far away. Best of all, she has come to take Diamond back with her--back to the land at the back of the North Wind.

Adored by millions of young readers since its first publication in 1871, George MacDonald's magical tale continues to delight.

Love this! I listen to an audio drama of this a long time ago and loved it so my mom got me this super cheap at a college library. So glad she did it! Love this just as much as the drama of it. I really enjoyed it and this is one of the first classics i have been able to get all the way through, without reading the modern version or the abridged version. Overall I love it, its one of my favorites and one of my top favorite classics.
