Synopsis from Goodreads
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 . . .
REVIEW BY NAOMI – YEAR 7
Highly recommended for fans of fantasy, The Boy Who Lost Fairyland immerses the reader into the fairyland world with wonderfully quirky characters including a wooden girl, a wombat and gramophone.
Following the adventures of Hawthorn, a troll turned human boy, taken from fairyland to the human world by the Red Wind, as he tries to find his way back to Fairyland. Journey through a stunningly descriptive apartment and painted forest.
The only downside I can think of with The Boy Who Lost Fairyland is the lack of expanation at the end of the book leaving me feeling a little confused.
