Read this in the 80's, think it was a series of books. A girl travels from land to land, once protected by different mythical beasts, now missing. She befriends ugly creatures along the way ( one of them she calls Mooncalf?). Eventually, she finds a prince under a spell in an ice castle, who can't remember who he is and has been turned into a monster, I think. Once the spell is lifted the creatures turn out to be the missing protectors of the land and the prince gets his memory back. Any ideas would be much appreciated!

    Is there a mooncalf or a girl traveling from land to land? What about this book series makes you think it's the one described? – Valorum Aug 21 '15 at 17:44
