Guest: A Changeling Tale

(2) 4-6 Mollie sets out to return Guest, a changeling child, to the Kinde Folke and bring home her true brother, Thomas--but on the journey, she grows to feel compassion for the unwanted creature. Mollie's sisterly affection toward both of her brothers gives the story its heart. Twists and turns provide ample opportunity for Irish folklore and legends to mingle with very human concerns about family, growing up, and bravery.
