The Stolen Child

type
  • Book
genre

Forever-young forest pixies abduct Henry Day, a runaway boy, and turn him into one of their own — while a replacement changeling becomes a piano prodigy.

Culture Clash
Changeling ”Henry” must remember to grow himself up (literally), and original Henry struggles to let go of his human past.

Genre Mash
Magic realism plus coming-of-age yarn plus Proustian memoir.

Lowdown
An ingenious, spirited allegory for adolescent angst, aging, the purpose of art, etc., that digs deep.
