Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Half moorfolk and half human, and unable to shape-shift or disappear at will, Moql threatens the safety of the Band. So the Folk banish her and send her to live among humans as a changeling. Named Saaski by the couple for whose real baby she was swapped, she grows up taunted and feared by the villagers for being different, and is comfortable only on the moor, playing strange music on her bagpipes. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; As Saaski grows up, memories from her forgotten past with the Folks slowly emerge. But so do emotions from her human side, and she begins to realize the terrible wrong the Folk have done to the humans she calls Da and Mumma. She is determined to restore their child to them, even if it means a dangerous return to the world that has already rejected her once.

Synopsis:

Moql is faced with a terrible fate when she is sent to live with humans. Although they reject and fear her, she must adjust to fitting in with these people to survive. Because a fearful human can be very dangerous.

Synopsis:

The child of a fairy folk mother and human father, Moql doesn't fit into either of their worlds. First raised by the fairies, she's exchanged for a human baby and starts life almost all over again, with a new name and only the faintest knowledge of her origins. A 1997 Newbery Honor Book.
