When Finn Learson literally stumbles out of a stormy sea into a small village on Scotland's Shetland Isles, he steals the villagers' hearts. He's handsome and charming and he helps with the fishing and the harvest and becomes fast friend's with Robbie's sister, Elspeth.

Yet there's something about Finn that makes Robbie and his dog Tam feel uneasy. Haunted by local tales of the Selkie folk, Robbie suspects there's more to Finn than meets the eye. But who would believe Robbie's wild suspicions?

As the story reaches its explosive finale at the traditional fire festival, can Robbie reveal the truth in time to save his sister?

One of Mollie Hunter's most popular novels for children, A Stranger Came Ashore was first published in 1975 to great acclaim. This new Kelpies Classics edition brings this much-loved Scottish classic to a new generation of children.
