Title:  Glen Robbie

Author:  T. E. Watson

Publisher:  Highlands Children's Press

Reviewer: Jeff Edwards – AAA member

Glen Robbie is a delightful Scottish fairy tale about courage, friendship, and acts of kindness.

The magical village of Glen Robbie only appears in the Highlands of Scotland on the anniversary of ten thousand moons. No one knows exactly when or where it will make its next appearance.

When the special day arrives, the fairy folk of the beautiful village are excited, but they are also a bit worried. Their village must now take up a special challenge. They must find a stranger, someone from outside the village, who is helpless and in need of help. If the fairies of Glen Robbie cannot complete this challenge, their beautiful village will vanish from the face of the earth, never to be seen again.

The village Elder sends many fairies out, to search the Scottish countryside for a person in need. They must search diligently, but they must also be very very careful. Somewhere out there, the crafty fox is waiting. If he catches a fairy, he will gobble it up.

Many days pass, and the fairies begin to return to their village with tales of failure. No one has managed to find a stranger in true need of help. At last, only two fairies are unaccounted for, Kera and Podwink. Everyone is worried about them. Why haven’t they returned? Are they lost? Have they been caught and eaten by the fox?

When the two missing fairies finally come safely home, they bring new hope and new friends to Glen Robbie. The village is saved! Where will the magical village appear next? We’ll have to wait for the anniversary of ten thousand moons to find out.

This beautifully-illustrated tale will have your children wanting to live in the magical village of Glen Robbie.
