OUR STORIES

THERE’S SOMETHING HAPPENING ON THIS ISLAND…

SOMETHING AWFUL

 

A circle of stones with dark powers, a wind-battered island and a boy looking for answers. A high-octane escalation of events and a compelling tale that will grab the reader from the first page. A must for Stephen King fans.

* A small village with a gloomy and mysterious background, old grudges and a feeling of constant danger worthy of David Lynch. But also adventure and friendship.

* Edgar Allan Poe meets Stranger Things.

* WINNER OF THE STREGA CHILDREN’S PRIZE 2019
