Reviews

'Mollie Hunter's books have stood the test of time and it's a joy to have a new edition of A Stranger Came Ashore ... First published nearly forty years ago, Mollie's story remains as intriguing and beguiling as ever.' -- The Scotsman 'The haunting mystery of this story grips the reader to the end.' -- Sunday Telegraph 'A fantastic, gripping tale based on the traditional Scottish legend of the Selkie Folk, and set on the beautiful, windswept Shetland Isles. Floris Books should be congratulated for making Mollie Hunter's book widely available again -- they are perennial favourites and deservedly so.' -- Scottish Children's Books, Winter 2002
