Saturday, September 10 at 3pm
speaking & signing
This afternoon it’s all about the fantastical world of The Changelings, an enchanting debut chapter book from local author Christina Soontornvat! When Izzy and her family move to a new town, Izzy is suitably bored until she hears stories of the witch living next door. But when her younger sister, Hen, goes missing, Izzy must venture into a world she could only have dreamed of to rescue her. Come on out today and join us.
"Fresh and imaginative new inventions on every page. I loved every ingenious twist and turn right up to the wonderfully satisfying ending." Katherine Catmull, author of The Radiant Road and Summer and Bird.
ABOUT THE CHANGELINGS
All Izzy wants is for something interesting to happen in her sleepy little town. But her wish becomes all too real when a mysterious song floats through the woods and lures her little sister Hen into the forest...where she vanishes. A frantic search leads to a strange hole in the ground that Izzy enters. But on the other side, she discovers that the hole was not a hole, this place is not Earth, and Hen is not lost. She's been stolen away to the land of Faerie, and it's up to Izzy to bring her home.
But inside Faerie, trouble is brewing-and Izzy is in way over her head. A ragtag group of outlaw Changelings offer to help, but she must decide whether a boulder that comes to life, a girl who looks like a ghost, and a boy who is also a stag can help her save Hen before it's too late.
