Beschreibung des Verlags
Come along and meet unique, extraordinary, and huge creatures on a mysterious isle. It’s like Monster Hunter and Godzilla on Gilligan's Island!
On a fantastic voyage, a family discovers legendary monsters that come alive before their very eyes. A vacation goes awry when a perfect storm tosses their skipper’s tiny boat off course. Finnegan, his sister, parents, and dog Howl become seven castaways, stranded on a uncharted desert island!
Curiously, they venture into the unknown and encounter a menagerie of colorful and cackling creatures. These survivors see beasts bigger than life and straight from their wildest imaginations! But despite all their differences (and a menacing mountain), can everybody finally get along?
Readers will learn about new animals and take a trip they’ll never forget being lost was never so fantastic!
Winner of Bookbuilders West award: 2009 Best children’s book cover. Artist of the Year at the GenCon 2011 annual convention, Jeff Miracola, a master monster maker, illustrates a zootopia from ancient lore including the Yowie (Australian Bigfoot), frosty Abominable Snowman, regal Gryphon, and swimming Ogopogo (Canada’s Loch Ness Monster).
Kids will love exploring a wonderful world full of bizarre beings. Parents will admire marvelously rendered artwork and pop culture references. Teachers and Librarians will appreciate how students will even learn about science fiction and mythology.
"Jeff's work has fascinated me since we first met while working on games like Dungeons & Dragons. His art and imagination were cutting-edge then, and what he brings to the children's book world is cutting-edge now."
- Tony DiTerlizzi, co-creator of The Spiderwick Chronicles
