    The Moorchild (KINDLE) The Moorchild is definitely a charming little book It is well written with interesting characters and a language style that I really enjoyed though I can see it being difficult for a younger reader The mythology was fairly standard but could have been developed and explored further as could the culture Also after rereading The Moorchild after a few years I was surprised to see how different the moral structure is than I remember

The first thing that stands out to me when I take a look at the career of author Eloise Jarvis McGraw is her outstanding record of successful longevity She won a Newbery Honor in 1952 for the book Moccasin Trail and then another in 1997 for this book The Moorchild with a third honoree The Golden Goblet thrown in there for good measure in 1962 Being hailed as an excellent writer over that long a stretch of time is a remarkable accomplishment really matched among contemporary authors of youth literature only by EL Konigsburg with perhaps a couple of others included in the conversation as well The Moorchild is a book that sits on the crossroads between fantasy and reality never shifting too far one way or the other Most stories with such heavy fairy influence tend to be liberally coated with fantasy elements but this book maintains its grip on realism even as it explores the lives of the fairy folk who live just outside the awareness of most human beings The effect of this is that we never know for sure what could happen next in the story as things change on a dime from mythical to realistic and the characters all sort of inhabit both worlds cognizant of the truth to the legends about fairy folk while themselves still living normal lives like any other humans In The Moorchild it seems that the fairy folk aren t particularly malevolent in the games they play they re driven by a sense of rogue playfulness and deep seated mischief which unfortunately has a way of drastically messing up the lives of humans who would rather have no part in the fun The most devastating trick is the swapping out of a human baby for a changeling a fairy pushed against its will to take part in the cruel prank for whatever reason the leaders of the folk have in mind It s not entirely made clear in this book why the babies are stolen but our story begins when a young fairy named Mol is chosen to be a changeling because of her inability to learn the tricks of the trade as uickly as her peers Mol was born half human and her less than purebred descent has marked her as the best candidate to be left behind Mol who has now taken on the name Saaski which the baby she is changed for was named by her parents forgets completely over time her history with the fairy people The villagers know that there s something not uite right with the new baby though and Saaski is never accepted by any of them other than her parents as anything but an outsider The villagers simmering anger lies fairly dormant for years until a luckless incident gives them the chance they d wanted to condemn Saaski and seek retribution The changeling girl now must escape from her village just to save her own life all the while trying to remember who she is and who she used to be and and figure out a way to set things right before it s too late The fantasy elements to The Moorchild are often original and impressively rendered showing Eloise Jarvis McGraw to be a very creative writer even as she neared the end of her life There are some well built and memorable characters in the book as well particularly the goatherd boy Tam who becomes something of a safe harbor for Saaski from all of the craziness that rages around her Saaski is a fairy it s true but what the villagers can t seem to grasp is that she didn t want to be exiled to live with them any than they wanted one of their babies to be swapped out for a changeling Saaski is at least as much a victim of the circumstances as the people of her village When that brutal mob mentality forms though and people give up control of their individual brains innocent victims always seem to get hurt Perhaps the most significant part to this book is its veiled warning of that truth The Moorchild is the first of Eloise Jarvis McGraw s stories that I ve yet read but I d be interested in trying others to see what they re like Ultimately I would not have awarded this book a Newbery Honor for 1997 ahead of such worthy non recipients as The Music of Dolphins by Karen Hesse Crash by Jerry Spinelli and After the War by Carol Matas but it s an interesting read that enhanced my perspective on Irish folklore and the old Celtic fairy stories that have been a part of common legend for almost as long as mankind can remember I would probably give one and a half stars to The Moorchild

The Moorchild Download ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free This enchanting Newbery Honor Book is a “magical find” School Library JournalHalf moorfolk and half human and unable to shape shift or disappear at will Mol threatens the safety of the Band So the Folk banish her and send her to live among humans as a changeling Named Sa. This Newbery Award winning book really captured my attention It is about the half fairy Mol who doesn t know she s half human until she is unable to become invisible in front of a human and he ends up almost catching her and endangering the other fairies or Folk as they call themselves They have a strange way of handling emotions they aren t affected the same as humans and don t have the same morality or even the same way of living within time so they have no ualms about casting her out switching her with a nearby un Baptized baby named Saaski She then is raised as Saaski having had her heart broken by the exile and her memory drowned in wanting to move on She knows she is strange for a human but doesn t know why or why people seem to look at her strangely and call her changeling The book is all about her trying to find her identity and how to be accepted and where she belongs This very much appeals to me because the books I write involve a character who doesn t uite know if she is human either and has similar problems fitting in Well that and I like stories about fairies Besides the subject matter the book is very well written and has a sort of old timey feel about it without sounding forced It s a very enjoyable read even for adults
