About the Book

Maudie Hessett discovers two green children from another world hiding in the village wolf pit. The children are treated so cruelly by the villagers that they return to their own land. Maudie, now a grown woman, vows to visit the green world when her own child becomes old enough. A haunting and highly poetic parable about prejudice and fear of “outsiders.”
