The Wonderling - Mira Bartok

Staff Pick

Why are we here? What is our purpose? A young fox groundling, or human-animal hybrid, named Arthur asks these time-honored questions while living in an orphanage under the rule of the cruel and twisted Miss Carbuncle. With equal measures of sweetness and sorrow, The Wonderling (Candlewick, $21.99) follows our kindhearted hero as he escapes the orphanage with a new friend only to face a fresh set of dangers in a neighboring city. There, he learns of a nefarious plan that Miss Carbuncle has for the orphanage. Can Arthur find the courage to use his gifts to help the creatures he left behind? Mira Bartók’s first novel for young readers has a beautiful and rich narrative with a touch of mythology and Oliver Twist. Ages 9-13.
