9780986191053: The Boatman

Isabel Wixon is weird. Not only does she see dead things, but her list of friends consists of a talkative ventriloquist’s dummy and the gentlemanly spider that lives in her hair. Real friends? Too hard. Inventing friends is much easier. Inventing the Boatman—a terrible monster that lures kids into a strange sleeping sickness and never lets them go—probably wasn’t one of her better ideas though.

About the Author:

Kat Hawthorne lurks (somewhat menacingly) in the darker folds of the literary world. Kat has an affinity for hats and tends to wear several at the same time—author, editor, mother, musician. She has several short stories published, a novelette, and wrote the narrative portion of an online roleplaying game. For more information on Kat’s dastardly work, please visit her website: www.katmhawthorne.com

Review:

With a smidgen of Tim Burton’s touch of horror, The Boatman will tug at your heartstrings, especially if you live in the dark side like my friend Kat. She crafts her stories in such way that will grab your curiosity the moment you pick up her work. Disastrous and dismal stories are her forte. She thrives in them. And The Boatman is a shining piece I adore. The characters move the story along masterfully. The story itself kept me up for several nights. I couldn’t get enough of Izzy, Monty, and all the others. Dora Mitchell, the illustrator, perfectly captures these characters and brings the story to another level.

So if you have an affinity for Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, pick up this book. It’s a cleverly written story that will show children they can be whoever they want, so as long they stand up for their convictions and never back down from anything. But I warn you now: don’t grab the oar.
