Erin | 1 comments I’ve been searching for this book for so many years! Has a similar plot to Labyrinth, a girl wishes her baby brother to go away and he’s taken, or taken in exchange for a magic marble? In any case, she swallows the marble and can talk to animals and goes on a quest to get her brother back. Please help me!!

But that's a baby sister. Was the baby taken by goblins or fairies?

Erin, around what year did you read this book? A range of years is fine.

Would you call this a picture book (about 32-48 pages) or a children's novel?
