Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2–4—In the middle of the night, nine-year-old Tam wakes up to discover that the fairies have swapped his newborn sister for a grotesque goblin baby, and Great-grandpa tells him that he must take the changeling to Faery and get his sibling back. However, the journey will be dangerous, and not everyone who enters this realm comes out. Once inside Faery, Tam discovers there are consequences to one's choices and to be a hero, he must choose the right path. This easy chapter book is full of whimsy and tales of fairy folk, and Great-grandpa adds a touch of playfulness that will engage young minds. Children will see a hero in Tam and understand that bravery can arise from unlikely circumstances. Simple but engaging line drawings bring the characters and the trials Tam must face to life. A well-told tale worth sharing.—Robyn Gioia, Bolles School, Ponte Vedra, FL
