...there's a very brief tale called 'The Goblins', in which a bunch of goblins steal a child out of a cradle and leave a changeling with a thick head and staring eyes in its place. And a friend of the grieving mother tells her to take the changeling into the kitchen, set him on the hearth, light a fire, and boil hot water in two eggshells, which will make the changeling laugh, and when the changeling laughs, the story tells us, that's the end of him...."And the other thing is music" he continued. "If you play an instrument and the baby begins to dance to it, you know it can't be your baby...." pages 87-89
