Description

A quirky, creepy fantasy set in Eerie-on-Sea finds a colorful cast of characters in hot pursuit of a sea monster thought to convey a surprising gift.

It's winter in the town of Eerie-on-Sea, where the mist is thick and the salt spray is rattling the windows of the Grand Nautilus Hotel. Inside, young Herbert Lemon, Lost and Founder for the hotel, has an unexpected visitor. It seems that Violet Parma, a fearless girl around his age, lost her parents at the hotel when she was a baby, and she's sure that the nervous Herbert is the only person who can help her find them. The trouble is, Violet is being pursued at that moment by a strange hook-handed man. And the town legend of the Malamander - a part-fish, part-human monster whose egg is said to make dreams come true - is rearing its scaly head. As various townspeople, some good-hearted, some nefarious, reveal themselves to be monster hunters on the sly, can Herbert and Violet elude them and discover what happened to Violet's kin? This lighthearted, fantastical mystery, featuring black-and-white spot illustrations, kicks off a trilogy of fantasies set in the seaside town.

About the author

Thomas Taylor was marooned on this planet in 1973, on a small island called Britain. After an initial period of exploration he found refuge at an Art School, and began pursuing a career in writing and illustrating children’s books. His first attempt to get noticed was by doing the cover art for the British edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Subsequent to this he wrote and illustrated a series of (sometimes award-winning) picture books for younger children, which include The Loudest Roar books about a Tiger called Clovis. He has also written and illustrated a trio of novellas about a teenage boy who can see ghosts, and who teams up with one to solve supernatural crimes — the Dan and the Dead series. His YA novel, Haunters, is about people who can travel in time through their dreams, appearing in the past as ghosts. Thomas has long had an ambition to make a comic book, and is delighted to have teamed up with author Marcus Sedgwick to create Scarlett Hart. Although he still looks to the stars for rescue, Thomas has lots to do in the meantime, including another comic book with Walker Books.
