Available in: Paperback, Hardcover, Ebook and AudioBook
When a boat-sized shoe and giant spectacles wash up on the shore, three of the town’s orphans – Jack, Skeezix, and Helen – know there’s something fishy going on; and the old ghost in the orphanage attic is inclined to agree. An evil carnival comes to town, run by a sinister gentleman who can turn himself into a crow. A mouse-sized man hiding in the wood-work leaves Jack an elixir that might, just might, allow him to cross during Solstice to another world, a mysterious land of dreams that holds the key to Jack’s past and all their adventures.
“Beautiful, threatening, and exhilarating all at once. This is a book for lovers of language, life, and dreams by an author who understands all three. Blaylock is a magician!!”
-Orson Scott Card
