The Boy Who Lost Fairyland

by Catherynne M. Valente
£7.99   paperback  Little, Brown Book Group (Corsair) (2016)

The Boy Who Lost Fairyland by Catherynne M. Valente The fourth instalment in the bestselling Fairyland series, hailed as 'one of the most extraordinary works of fantasy, for adults or children, published so far this century' (Time magazine).
 
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.
 
Soon, Hawthorn finds himself at the centre of a changeling revolution - until he comes face to face with a beautiful young Scientiste with very big, very red assistant . . .
 
With The Boy Who Lost Fairyland, Catherynne M. Valente's wisdom and wit will continue to charm readers of all ages.
