Meet the Guest

From the master of spookiness, Mary Downing Hahn. When malicious sprites called the Kinde Folke snatch Mollie's baby brother and replace him with a hideous changeling, Mollie travels through eerie, perilous lands to save him.

When her adorable baby brother is replaced by an ugly, ill-tempered changeling, Mollie is determined to find the so-called Kinde Folke who took baby Thomas, return the changeling she calls Guest, and make them give Thomas back. Natural and magical obstacles and her own reckless temperament make her journey arduous and full of dangers, and a plot rich in surprises and twists makes this book a must-read for Mary Downing Hahn’s fans.

My Review

If you are a fan of folk lore tales than you need to check out this book. It is about a changeling. I have read several books on this subject but I have to say this is in my top three favorites. What I loved the most about this book is how author, Mary stayed close to the real legends of stories about changelings and other folk lore. Some of the other books that I have read on this subject were a bit more "fictional".

Mollie's compassion towards Guest was kind. It showed that love can be found in even the "ugliest" of things. In addition, Guest's ability to adapt and learn to be good made him more than just a changeling. It brought me the reader closer to him.

I could not stop reading this book. I was transported on the journey with Mollie as she went in search of her stolen brother. I look forward to reading more books from this author.
