The Lost Boy
Ruth, Greg. The Lost Boy. Graphix, 2013.
Nate moves to a new house and finds an old tape recorder under the floorboards of his bedroom. The tapes describe a mystery that another boy was trying to solve, as well as a fantasy world filled with mythical creatures. Together with a neighbor girl, Nate tries to solve the mystery in the message of the tapes.
The art in this book is quite striking, and the story line is intriguing and fascinating. I purchased this book for my library, and I know I'll have difficulty keeping it on the shelves. This will be a big hit with fantasy and graphic novel fans alike.
