Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy by Karen Foxlee

Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy ; illus. Knopf, Library ed. Still reeling from the death of her mother, eleven-year-old Ophelia Jane Worthington-Whittard copes by restricting her beliefs to the scientifically proven. However, science fails her when, at a strange museum, she meets a mysterious, nameless boy locked behind a door and visible only through the golden keyhole who tells her he has been chosen by wizards to deliver a magical sword to the One Other who will defeat the Snow Queen and save the world. Foxlee inventively weaves familiar folkloric elements—an evil snow queen, a magic sword, a quest, a chosen one—into her modern setting, all the while evoking a mood of dreamlike foreboding. Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide.
