The Changeling - Selma Lagerlöf, Jeanette Winter, Susanna Stevens When a farm couple's lovely baby is stolen and replaced with an ugly, trouble-making troll baby, everyone but the heart-broken mother thinks the changeling should be killed, or at least abused in hopes that his mother will take him back. When she refuses, everyone ostracizes her, but she resolutely protects the unwanted baby.
