"In his debut, Merritt shows both a knack for evocative phrasing...and a deft hand at crafting flamboyantly icky monsters in creepy settings...
[A] hair-raising tribute to the life-changing power of stories."

Poor Jonathan York.
Such a mild fellow, wanting nothing more than a simple, predictable life, safe from the darker corners of the world. But when fate strands him in a sinister swamp, poor Jonathan York must confront his greatest fears: thieves, monsters, an evil ice cream conspiracy, and (gasp!)…PUBLIC SPEAKING!
Ages 8 and up.
Kory is also the illustrator of the NY Times best-selling Poptropica graphic novel series, which was created by Jeff "Wimpy Kid" Kinney.
