A Yarn for the Strange at Heart

“Mr. York had spent his life avoiding the unpleasant, yet he knew what a zombie was – a mindless, soulless minion to evil.”

Poor Jonathan York. When the thought of a quick shortcut sees him lost in an unpleasant swamp, Mr. York has no idea of what the coming night has in store for him. You see, this is no ordinary swamp, and the things that lurk in there would give anyone a fright. Mr. York, being an unassuming and quite ordinary sort of fellow is perhaps more scared than most.

As night looms ever closer, he happens upon a small group of travellers who are willing to help him find a safe place to spend the night. Unfortunately, the price for a night at The Cankerbury Inn is a story – and boring Mr. York has not a story at all that is worth telling. As Mr. York is sent back out into the night, he encounters terrible creatures and untold dangers…but he also uncovers a side of himself he didn’t realize was there. By the time this unforgettable night is over, one thing is for certain…Mr. York will have one heck of a story to tell.

The Dreadful Fate of Jonathan York is the perfect spooky tale for Halloween reading. With a storyline that is just spooky enough to be interesting, but never frightening enough to be unsuitable for young readers, it provides a quirky tale and a moral as well – if you believe in yourself, adventure is a risk worth taking. The illustrations are perfectly suited to the story, showing a wide range of fantastical creatures that inhabit the swamp. They and the unassuming and quite boring Mr. York are portrayed in four colors and countless expressions that bring each image to life.
