Item Description...
The Wormling, Owen Reeder, in his continued search for the Son, seeks advice from the Scribe, but along the way is constantly plagued by the Changeling, who can change shapes instantaneously, and is sent by the evil Dragon.

Publishers Description
"Nothing special" is the best way to describe Owen Reeder--at least that's what he's been told all his life. When a stranger visits his father's bookstore, Owen's ordinary life spirals out of control and right into a world he didn't even know existed. Owen believes the only gift he possesses is his ability to devour books, but he is about to be forced into a battle that will affect two worlds: his and the unknown world of the Lowlands. Perfect for readers ages 10 to 14 who enjoy a fast-paced story packed with action, fantasy, and humor.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
"You dream too much about what should be."  Jun 13, 2004
"The Changeling" is a superb, strangely disturbing novel by Scottish writer, Robin Jenkins. Middle-aged, overweight, English teacher Charles Forbes works at a Glasgow school. Tom Curdie, eternally grubby and messy, is one of his most problematic pupils. Tom is a resident of the notorious slum, Donaldson's Court, and although Tom is extremely intelligent, his background guarantees a poor future. Other teachers loathe Tom and see the 13-year-old as "sly and insolent"--a future delinquent. But Forbes casts his eyes upon Tom, and in contrast to his fellow teachers, he can't dismiss Tom quite so easily. In spite of the fact that Tom is already on probation for stealing, Forbes decides to invite the boy along on the family annual holiday to the village of Towellan. The other teachers think Forbes is deranged and a "pompous bore." Mary, Charles's wife is flabbergasted at the suggestion that Tom should accompany them, but Forbes believes this well-intentioned charitable gesture is ennobling--and may even help in a promotion. Forbes wants to give Tom a taste of how good life can be, but in his moralizing and meddling, he doesn't stop to consider what harm he might cause.

Everyone except Charles knows that taking Tom on holiday is an awful mistake, but Charles lives in a cocoon-shell in which he envisions himself as this great benevolent champion. This is not at all how others see him. Charles's family gives in when it comes to taking Tom on holiday, as it seems to mean so much to Charles's vision of himself. Even Charles's daughter, Gillian seems on a mission to protect her father from the uglier aspects of Tom's troubled nature. The Forbes children, Gillian and Alistair, both react to Tom's presence in different ways. A rather unpleasant and shallow side of Alistair emerges, but it is Gillian's deep recognition of the core of Tom's character which ultimately--and unwittingly--leads to disaster.

"The Changeling" is a tragically sad story, but at the same time, the novel possesses a certain dark humour. The descriptive scenes of the "unwholesome human rubbish" that dwells in Donaldson Court reminds me of sections by Charles Dickens regarding the more grotesque aspects of humanity. The members of the vermin-loaded Curdie family are utterly revolting. As long-time residents of Donaldson's Court and "domiciled there for generations, they had undergone a debasement." The Curdies are somehow genetically primed for survival in the disease and filth of the slums. In complete contrast to the Curdies is Charles's snobby mother-in-law, an intimidating, opinionated old battle-ax who instantly mistrusts Tom but then begins to respect him. Tom is a solemn, opportunistic boy who has survived by creating a hard, implacable shell around his heart. He can never afford to soften or hope. He understands that the only way to survive is to never acknowledge emotion. Ultimately, "The Changeling" raises questions regarding the motives and impulses of do-gooders, and the viability of truly 'saving'anyone--displacedhuman.

Lighthouses and Ropes  Jun 8, 2000
Robin Jenkins - maybe unfamiliar to many American readers - is one of Scotland's most humane and accessible writers. His novels explore the origins of human good and evil and "The Changeling" follows the tale of Tom Curdie, a young boy taken from the slums of inner-city Glasgow by his well-meaning middle-class English teacher. Mr Forbes takes the tough young Tom on afamily holiday away from teh city in an attempt to prove that nurture, not nature, is the dominant force in establishing both personality and morality. The text explores the dilemma faced by Tom as he struggles to work out whether he fits into this new effete world, or in the dark and violent, drink-sodden existence he has temporarily left. Mr Forbes, too, faces some hard thinking about his own ideas as it becomes increasingly obvious to him that his social experiment is by no means as clear cut as he thought.

As an introduction to the style and concerns of Jenkins you could not do better than "The Changeling". The author's highly visual description and philosophical approach to the format places him in the great European tradition of the novel rather than in the sometimes insular British tradition.

Read this book ... and once you've read it, try any other Jenkins novel. I suggest "The Conegatherers", "A Love of Innocence", "Fergus Lamont" and ... any others! These are distinctly Scottish novels, but their concerns are accessible world-wide.

Incidentally ... "Lighthouses and Ropes"? Read the novel and get the symbols!
