Reviews
"Coakley offers up a secretive tale with an abundance of turns and surprises . . . readers pulled in by the premise will enjoy puzzling through unreliable-narrator Wicked Nix's mysteries. This dark twist on the old legend of stolen children is a spooky, compelling read."--Kirkus Reviews
"This is a magical fairy tale that leaves the reader's heart aching for an abandoned, homeless child in the forest, and culminates with a touching ending."--School Library Connection
"Read alone or read aloud, Coakley's tale has a tangible sense of wonder that conjures a cozy magic. A strong purchase."--School Library Journal
**STARRED REVIEW**
"[Coakley] strikes a thoughtful balance between fairy tales and the realistic feelings of loss and love."--Booklist
"As Nix reveals himself to be an increasingly unreliable narrator, readers will guess Nix's true nature and the human's relation to him . . . [will] satisfy young readers who like their fairies more tricky than glitter."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
