Original fairy tale written and illustrated by Lauren Mills
Dial Books, 1999
Amanda loves to visit the gnomes who live in her garden--especially now that there's a noisy new baby in her house. Her little brother can't do a thing for himself, and when he cries he looks just like a toad squirming on its back. It's the gnomes who confirm Amanda's worst fears: The baby is a changeling, a goblin baby--and the goblins have her real brother. Amanda knows she must come up with a plan to get him back, but will those tricky goblins return the baby?
The Goblin Baby weaves a warm and funny tale of sibling rivalry with all the wonder of the fairy folk. With its delicate and detailed watercolor paintings, this charming story is another triumph from one of America's best-known illustrators of the fairy world.
