Richly colored paintings highlight this classic fable of human generosity, sacrifice, and reunion.

by Selma Lagerlöf & translated by Susanna Stevens & illustrated by Jeanette Winter

by Selma Lagerlöf & translated by Susanna Stevens & illustrated by Jeanette Winter. Winter's handsome stylized art, in a rich palette dominated by deep blues and purples and softer rusts and gold, brings out the story's mythic quality and its underlying theme concerning the consequences of mistreating any child. Like some Swedish films, the story bears a burden of angst that won't appeal to everyone, but it's well told, skillfully translated, and beautifully illustrated, and makes an intriguing contrast to other changeling stories-e. Brock Cole's lighthearted Alpha and the Dirty Baby (1991). Fiction/Picture book.

Lagerlöf, Selma, 1858-1940; Winter, Jeanette, il. A farmer's wife becomes the foster mother of a troll's child and her humanistic treatment of the changeling eventually secures the return of her own son.

Reviews:
  • Samardenob
The best characteristic of this book is the constant change in where you think the plot is going. The title says it all, although the last chapter is a major twist. The history is not dealt with as well as in previous books. The Victorian period was a time of tremendous change and scientific discoveries, but very little of that is felt in the story, other than the use of trains, which made travel so much faster and easier. It's still a fun read, but slightly disappointing.
  • Elastic Skunk
All I can say is that these books "The daughters of England" by Philippa Carr I can recommend stronly to those readers who like suspense, drama, love and mystery. I started with book one and has read almost all of them now and every book I find interesting and difficult to put down. Its not just a novel the history of England are worked through from one to the other and how the Britians and their kings and Queens follow. I absolutely love every book by Philippa Carr. Never a dull moment!
  • Akinozuru
There are so many complex characters & intricate plots that this novel kept me entranced throughout. I am an avid reader & often can figure out the plot early in the book but this novel happily surprised me at the end.
  • Aedem
Philippa Carr does it again! This novel takes place in the era of Queen Victoria. If you want a book that will take you away to a historic, and wonderful time, then reading The Changeling is a must! The author does another fantastic job of teaching you history within the midst of a fascinating story. I am still reading the novel; and I can not wait until I start reading another one of Philippa's books.

Excellent book. Couldn't put it down. Glad to find out that Philippa Carr is the same author as my favorite ... Victoria Holt. Now I have a slew of new books to read. And this one was tremendous.
