The Boy Who Lost Fairyland
by Catherynne M. Valente

Flap Copy Description:
When a young troll named Hawthorn is stolen from Fairyland by the Golden Wind, he becomes a changeling – a human boy -- in the strange city of Chicago, a place no less bizarre and magical than Fairyland when seen through trollish eyes. Left with a human family, Hawthorn struggles with his troll nature and his changeling fate. But when he turns twelve, he stumbles upon a way back home, to a Fairyland much changed from the one he remembers. Hawthorn finds himself at the center of a changeling revolution--until he comes face to face with a beautiful young Scientiste with very big, very red assistant.

My Thoughts:
Ms. Valente's recent release: The Boy Who Lost Fairyland is the fourth book in her Fairyland Series - it's just as magical as her first three! Ms. Valente's choice of whimsical words, her creative metaphors, surprising settings, and unpredictable plot, make this fantasy novel for young readers truly extraordinary. I highly recommend The Boy Who Lost Fairyland to readers from the ages of eight to eighty!
