Discover the horrible fate of Jonathan York as he sets out on his journey through a spooky forest with an alarming party of travelmates! "...[a] hair-raising tribute to the life-changing power of stories . . . Merritt shows both a knack for evocative phrasing ... and a deft hand at crafting flamboyantly icky monsters in creepy settings." -- Kirkus Reviews , STARRED review Jonathan York has led a boring life - a pointless degree from the community college, a lackluster job at the General Store, and never any desire for something more exciting. But when fate leaves him stranded in a sinister land, he finds himself seeking an adventure of his own. Along the way he encounters ghoulish thieves, ravenous swamp monsters, a dastardly ice cream conspiracy, and a necromancer bent on human sacrifice. In this beautifully illustrated, four-color novel, Jonathan York's life takes a decidedly spooky turn!

display_description Mild-mannered Jonathan York wants nothing more than an ordinary, dull life until he gets lost in a swamp and evicted from the only shelter, the Cankerbury Inn, where the price is a story to tell, and encounters all sorts of dangers.
