Little more than a thousand years ago on a distant planet, large and small creatures needed one another in a symbiotic relationship. When the prince of one of the large creatures manages to get kidnapped, however, few would see what effect that might have on the future. Fast forward to today and a typical American family is getting ready to go on vacation. Teenaged Reese would much rather stay home by himself but that is clearly not an option. When the family accidentally washed up on a strange abandoned island, however, they discover there may be more to this weird land than immediately meets the eye. I'm not sure what it is that TenNapel has for breakfast each morning, but order me some! This guy comes up with the weirdest, craziest ideas and for some reason they work. Aside from the exciting adventure and great art, it was really great to see a story where characters were more than just two-dimensions. The book is bizarre in all the best way. - B
