When I picked up this book from the library, I was a bit apprehensive due to its cover. Yes I know one should never judge a book by its cover, but this one was clearly a children's book, and I suppose I hadn't done my research, and wasn't quite expecting that.

Never the less, once I started reading, which amounted to a short read since the book is only about 100 pages long with large type, I was pleasantly surprised.

It's a lovely story about a young boy who faced with the presence of evil little fairies, must save his baby sister from their clutches. Incorporated into the story are tidbits about the darker realm of faery, as well as various folk beliefs about these "wee people". The writing is compelling, though a bit childish for an adult, but definitely worth the read.
