When he was little, Trevor Upjohn was kidnapped by bogeymen and taken far away to the unearthly kingdom of Superbia. Most children in Superbia don't know where they came from but Trevor's own vague memories launch him on a collision course with lots of hungry bogeys, the fishers, a guild of secretive humans and their mystical tree, a dark sorcerer, spiders, and much more. Trevor must choose whether to help out his new acquaintances in their desperate struggle or search for a home he scarcely remembers. The Purloined Boy is the first book in The Weirdling Cycle an upcoming series of Christian fantasy books from Canonball Books, written by author C.R. Wiley.

From the Back Cover:

The Purloined Boy is a work of fantasy literature for young adults. In parts dark and grotesque, in others luminous and inspiring; it could be described as R.L. Stine meets Plato. It begins with the question, “Where do all those children on the milk cartons go?” It provides the answer through the eyes of a boy named Trevor Upjohn—the purloined boy. Trevor endures the misery of life in Superbia but dreams of going home. He finds unlikely allies in an old man, a girl named Maggie, and a strange but powerful mouse named Zephyr.The Purloined Boy brings together the worlds of young adult fantasy and classical philosophy. It reads like a popular young adult fantasy, but for those with eyes to see, the book is suffused with allusions to philosophical themes and insights. These are never presented in a didactic manner; rather they are woven into the story to provide depth and richness without drawing attention to them. The Purloined Boy is intended to be both entertaining and enriching – the sort of book that can be read again and again for enjoyment and profit.
