Additional Notes

From The Publisher*When a young troll named Hawthorn is stolen from Fairyland by the Red Wind, he becomes a changeling - a human boy - in the strange city of Chicago, a place no less bizarre and magical than Fairyland. Left with a human family, Hawthorn struggles with his troll nature and his changeling fate, while attending school and learning about human kindnesses - and un-kindnesses. TIME magazine has praised Catherynne M. Valente's Fairyland books as "one of the most extraordinary works of fantasy, for adults or children, published so far this century." In this fourth installment of her saga, Valente's wisdom and wit will charm readers of all ages.
Review Quote*The Fairyland series: "A glorious balancing act between modernism and the Victorian Fairy Tale, done with heart and wisdom." -Neil Gaiman, Newbery Award-winning author of The Graveyard Book "Valente's subversive storytelling is sheer magic." -Tamora Pierce, author of the Immortals series "A mad, toothsome romp of a fairy tale - full of oddments, whimsy, and joy." -Holly Black, author of Zombies vs. Unicorns and the Spiderwick Chronicles
